Meng Yang, postdoc

Newly employed

Meng Yang was employed as a postdoc 1 October 2020, associated with Centre for the Mathematics of Quantum Theory (QMATH). His mentor is Torben Krüger.

Meng YangMeng’s primary research interests include random matrix theory and related areas, such as Riemann--Hilbert problems, orthogonal polynomials, multiple orthogonal polynomials, Coulomb gases and the random point process and its physical applications.

Meng finished his PhD at the University of South Florida, Tampa, USA, under the supervision of Seung-Yeop Lee. The title of his thesis is "Orthogonal Polynomials With Respect to the Measure Supported Over the Whole Complex Plane", in which he has been studying several problems about Coulomb gas models and the corresponding strong asymptotics of planar orthogonal polynomials via Riemann--Hilbert problems.

After that, he spent two years as a postdoc in the GPP research group (Geometry, Physics, and Probability), IRMP, UCLouvain, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, under the supervision of Tom Claeys.

In Copenhagen, Meng would like to continue to study random matrix theory and related areas to understand more statistical properties of the eigenvalues of the random matrix and related areas in the future.
