Jian Li received his B.S. degree in mathematics education from the Baoji University of Arts and Sciences, Baoji, China, while he obtained his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in computational mathematics from the Xi'an Jiaotong University, Shaanxi, China. While pursuing his Ph.D. degree, he visited and studied at the College of Mathematical Sciences and College of Engineering, Peking University, Beijing, China. From 2008 to 2010, he worked at the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering, University of Calgary, Calgary, AB, Canada, as a Postdoc Fellow. From May to June 2012, he worked at the Department of Applied Mathematics at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong, as a Research Fellow. From July to August 2013, he was invited as a Visiting Professor at the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering, University of Calgary, AB, Canada. Until now, he has published 35 research papers in international SCI journals, including some top journals in numerical mathematics and mechanics such as Journal of Computational Physics. His current research interests include finite element/volume methods, adaptive finite element/volume methods, numerical analysis on the incompressible flow, numerical simulation on heavy oil recovery, optimal control in physics, and fluid/fluid and fluid/structure interaction problems.
