Brief Biography

Dr. Haimeng Zhang received his Ph.D. in applied mathematics with concentration on statistics from the University of Southern California in 1998. He joined UNCG in 2013. He has directed research over a number of undergraduate students through various grants including NSF – REU (2009 – 2012). He was awarded an NSF grant in 2012 to support his research on the statistical analysis of global-scale processes and phenomena.
