Tony Sheu went abroad to Northwestern University (Engineering Science and Applied Mathematics) to continue his Master study in the topic of mathematical combustion, after finishing the undergraduate study at the Engineering School of National Taiwan University in 1981. In 1982, he started his Ph.D. study at Purdue University working on the variational finite element method for solving the compressible and incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. After gaining the Ph.D. degree in 1987 from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Dr. Sheu worked at a consulting company for 9 months and went back to Taiwan teaching in National Taiwan University. He is now the Associate Director of the Center for Quantum Science and Engineering and the Executive Committee Member of Taida Institute of Mathematical Sciences, National Taiwan University. His research area is scientific computing. The topics under current investigation include the development of numerical scheme for the transport equations governing the hydrodynamics, heat and mass transfer, electrohydrodynamics, magnetohydrodynamics, and electroosmotics. These fundamental researches have been applied to the high intensity focal ultrasound (HIFU) and radio frequency ablation (RFA) for liver tumors, inspiration/expiration and acupuncture/moxibustion, and so forth.
