Kaibo Hu has been awarded the SIAM Early Career Prize in Computational Science and Engineering for "contributions to the finite element exterior calculus, particularly structure-preserving numerical algorithms for magnetohydrodynamics.”
Kaibo is Royal Society University Research Fellow in Oxford Mathematics and Christ Church College. He works on numerical PDEs, particularly finite element exterior calculus, a framework that preserves topological and geometric structures of continuous problems in numerical computation. His recent results include applications of the Bernstein-Gelfand-Gelfand resolution as a systematic approach for analysing and discretising PDEs, with potential applications to geometry, continuum mechanics and numerical general relativity.
Kaibo will be awarded the prize at the 2022 SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering (CSE23), scheduled to take place February 26 – March 3, 2023 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands where he will give a plenary lecture.
Established in 2016, the prize is awarded every two years to one post-PhD early career researcher in the field of computational science and engineering for outstanding, influential, and potentially long-lasting contributions to the field within seven years of receiving the PhD or equivalent degree as of January 1 of the award year.
