Tenure-Track Assistant Professor Department of Mathematics

Carrying a dream to become a professional football journalist, Jin graduated with a B.A. in Journalism from Dalian University of Technology in 2007. As things didn't turn out as he wished, he chose to pursue a degree in mathematics. After completing a M.Sc. in operational research in Dalian University of Technology under the supervision of Professor Gui-Hua Lin, he moved to Canada in Oct. 2010. He earned a Ph.D. in applied mathematics from University of Victoria under the supervision of Professor Jane Juanjuan Ye in Dec. 2014.
