Assoc Prof Andrew James Kricker | Prof. Kricker's most significant research interest lies in the mathematical ramifications of current developments in mathematical and theoretical physics. To be precise, he is interested in the ramifications of certain developments in quantum field theory and quantum gravity in the fields of topology, algebra, and combinatorics. Prof. Kricker's particular speciality is in so-called "quantum topological invariants". These are invariants of knots, 3-manifolds, and various other low-dimensional topological structures, that arise from Topological Quantum Field Theories. More generally, he has a considerable general interest in the fields that surround this topic: knot theory, the theory of low-dimensional manifolds, Lie algebras, Hopf algebras, representation theory, homological algebra, algebraic combinatorics, and so on. |

He is primarily interested in algebraic, geometric, topological, and enumerative combinatorics; combinatorial and computational commutative algebra; and the theoretical aspects of deep learning.

Assoc Prof Chua Chek Beng | Prof. Chua studies the theory of continuous optimization, and develops efficient solution methods for several types of optimization models. He has designed and analyzed interior-point algorithms for semidefinite optimization, symmetric cone optimization and homogeneous cone optimization. He studies the possibility of applying homogeneous cone optimization on various problems where semidefinite optimization models are used. This study is partly driven by the possible reduction in the size when semidefinite optimization models are solved as homogeneous cone optimization problems, hence allowing large-scale problems to be solved via homogeneous cone optimization. He also investigated and proved several properties of the primal-dual central paths for semidefinite optimization and homogeneous cone optimization. These properties are useful in the study of local convergence behaviour of path-following algorithms. |

Asst Prof Xia Kelin | Dr. Kelin Xia's research focuses on three aspects: mathematical modeling of biomolecule, topological data analysis and elliptic interface problem. The first subject of his research is to construct multiscale geometric models based on the variational multiscale theory. With these models, the features of biomolecular surface and structure can be characterized and quantitatively analyzed. Further, these models can be used in the study of surface visualization, protein-protein interaction, drug design, protein flexibility, and protein folding.
Topological data analysis is his recent interest. For the first time, he applies persistent homology in the analysis of fullerene molecule properties, i.e., topological structure, heat formation energy, and isomer stability. He utilizes persistent homology for protein rigidity, flexibility and folding analysis. He proposes a multidimensional persistence scheme and a multiresolution topological simplification method, and further applied both in excessively large biomolecular data analysis.
The last subject belongs to scientific computation. A major emphasis of his research is to design robust and highly accurate schemes specifically for the elliptic interface problem from the realistic biological setting. In general, challenges come from the complex geometry originated from complicated biomolecular structure. |
