Feng Xu is a Research Fellow in Numerical Analysis. In his current project he develops adaptive stochastic finite element algorithms for partial differential equations with random inputs. Prior to this project, he also carried out research in hydrodynamics and biofluid dynamics. His research aim is to analyse mathematical models from the real world by using a combination of analytical analysis and numerical simulation.

Qualifications

  • PhD Applied Mathematics, University of Nottingham, 2014
  • MEng Fluid Mechanics, Shanghai University, 2010
  • BSc Mathematics, Anhui Normal University, 2007

Biography

Feng graduated with a BSc in Mathematics from Anhui Normal University (China) in 2007. After graduating, he went on to Shanghai University (China) to carry out research on hydroelastic interaction between water waves and very large floating structure (VLFS) as part of a MEng programme, under the supervision of Prof Dong Qiang Lu (http://my.shu.edu.cn/en/dqlu). In 2010, he started his PhD programme at the University of Nottingham, investigating self-excited oscillations in a flexible-channel flow, under the supervision of Prof Oliver E. Jensen and Prof John Billingham. Feng subsequently moved to the University of Manchester and took up a postdoctoral research associate position, working on uncertainty quantification. He is currently carrying out a research fellowship at the Unversity of Birmingham, where he is developing computational methods for stochastic partial differential equations with Dr Alex Bespalov.
