Yingda Chen Wins the Germund Dahlquist Prize From the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics

Yingda Cheng, a mathematics professor in the College of Science at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, was recently named the recipient of the 2023 Germund Dahlquist Prize by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. She was recognized at the 10th International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics, which took place in Tokyo. The Germund Dahlquist Prize is awarded every two years to an individual for original contributions to numerical solutions of differential equations and numerical methods for scientific computing.

Dr. Cheng, who was a faculty member at Michigan State University before arriving at Virginia Tech this fall, was honored for her work on discontinuous Galerkin methods, including structure preservation and sparse grid methods for kinetic and transport equations.

“I have long been inspired by the work of many pioneers in numerical analysis, including previous Germund Dahlquist prize winners,” said Professor Cheng. “It is a great honor for me to receive this award and learn that our work has been recognized by the community.”

Professor Cheng is a graduate of the University of Science and Technology of China. She holds a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in applied mathematics from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.
