Hsien-Ching Kao has been a member of the Wolfram Technology Group since July 2013. His areas of specialty are hydrodynamic stabilities, bifurcation theory, numerical continuation, and asymptotic analysis. His PhD work focuses on the study of full Navier–Stokes and modeling equations of hydrodynamic systems such as convection and buoyancy-driven flows. He is interested in combining analytical and numerical approaches to solve nonlinear equations.
Kao has teaching experience as a graduate student instructor at the University of California, Berkeley. In addition to his work at Wolfram, he currently researches the synchronization of phase oscillators. He uses Mathematica to perform simulation and spectral stability calculations.
