# Dr. Zhenjun Shi

**Associate Professor of Mathematics**

Ph.D (Operations Research)

MS (Computational Mathematics)

BS (Mathematics)

I was born in Xintai, Shandong Province of China. My parents tought me how to evaluate plants in farmland and do some farmer business in the poor mountain village .This is why I choose mathematics as my major. I left my village and went to cities to earn my Bachelor Degree in Mathematics, Master Degree in Computational Mathematics, and Ph. D. in Operations Research. I hoped to be a businessman for earning money to support my family but I became a university teacher. My research is focusing on the application of mathematical knowledge to real world problems, especially on numerical optimization, numerical analysis, model and algorithm analysis, dynamic system analysis,etc..
