This summer Dr. Luan earned a new three-year NSF award entitled "Innovative Time Integrators for Stiff and Highly Oscillatory Systems". This is his second NSF award since he joined MSU as an assistant professor in Fall 2019. NSF has released the award abstract which states that "The overall goal of this project is to develop novel time integration methods for stiff and highly oscillatory systems and demonstrate their performance on applications such as numerical weather prediction, ocean modeling, and molecular dynamics simulations. Additionally, the project aims to train one doctoral student and offer opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students in mathematics at Mississippi State University. Training of at least one graduate student on the topics of the proposed work is expected."
