Here is my CV.
My primary research area is Inverse Problems. My research topics include Inverse shape problem, invisibility cloaking, stress concentration in composites, and plasmonic resonance. Recently, I developed a new geometric series solution method for the anti-plane elasticity based on the geometric function theory and applied this method to extend the Eshelby uniformity principle and to construct neutral inclusions of layered structure.
