  Professor

Prof. Leung has been with the Department of Mathematics at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) since 2009. Prior to joining HKUST, he was an instructor and postdoc researcher at the University of California, Irvine. He was educated at the HKUST (B.Sc. 99'; M.Phil. 01') and the University of California, Los Angeles (Ph.D. 06', in Mathematics). His research focuses on Eulerian techniques to approximate high frequency asymptotic solutions to wave phenomena and their related inverse problems, numerical methods for interfacial motions, and variational and statistical methods for image processing. Prof. Leung is currently an associate professor of Mathematics and an associate dean of Science.
