  • Robust boundary integral methods (boundary element methods)



  • Dr. Qiang Sun commenced DECRA within the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Melbourne in August 2015. His research interests focus on using numerical methods, especially the robust boundary integral method, to solve problems in engineering, chemistry and biology. His profound knowledge of boundary integral method (boundary element method) is applied to a broad area of applications, ranging from wave phenomena in acoustics, electromagnetic scattering including antenna design, electrostatic interactions between charge moieties in proteins & DNA, drug-substrate interactions and bubble, drop & particle dynamics as well as free surface movements. Qiang graduated in naval architecture & marine engineering with a Bachelor degree from Jiangsu University of Science & Technology in 2002 and with a Masters degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2005. Supported by the Overseas Research Students Awards Scheme and the K. C. Wong research fellowship, he moved to University College London (UCL) to do PhD in CFD in mechanical engineering and bio-engineering. He then worked at the National University of Singapore (NUS) as a research associate, fellow & scientist from 2010 to 2015. Qiang's full publications can be found at
