Dr. Jun Cao obtained his Ph.D. degree in Mathematics in 1995 from University of Paris VI, France. His research work included the a posteriori error estimate analysis and the development of adaptive numerical simulation tools for applications in the aerospace engineering (at Dassault Aviation, France, in 1990–1995, and at University of California, San Diego, in 1995–1996), the environmental engineering (at Stanford University in 1996–1998), and the fuel cell technology (at Simon Fraser University in 1999, and at University of Victoria in 1999–2000). He joined Ryerson in August 2000, and now he is a Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering. Currently, his research work mainly focuses on the development of novel numerical methods for the study of characteristics of complex flows and transport phenomena.
