Dr. Jianya Lu, a PhD graduate of the Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Science and Technology, the University of Macau (UM), received an offer of the position of Lecturer from the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Essex, United Kingdom. The University of Essex is one of the leading research universities in the United Kingdom. This is the effort of UM’s years of hard work in talent development, and it is also an international recognition of UM’s educational level.
The University of Essex is a well-known university with first-class teaching quality and comprehensive scientific research strength. It was founded in 1964. It ranks 22nd among young universities in the world, 26th in the UK, and 76th in the world for university influence. The Department of Mathematical Sciences covers pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics and data science.
Jianya Lu has been studying for a PhD in Mathematics at UM since 2018. His research interests are limit theory, stochastic algorithms and Stein’s method. Jianya Lu, who received a teaching position at an internationally renowned university shortly after completing his defense, said, “I am very happy that my research and teaching skills have been recognized. Although I have no postdoctoral or overseas working experience, my two-year teaching assistantship at UM has greatly improved my teaching skills. UM’s English and international environment also broadened my horizons and successfully put me on track with international universities.” Under the guidance of Associate Prof Xu Lihu of FST, Jianya Lu conducted in-depth research on the subjects of statistical learning. He has published three papers in Bernoulli, a top journal in statistics. In the ongoing collaborative work with the scholars from the University of Chicago and Boston College, they succeeded in extending the classic almost sure invariance principle to infinite-dimensional space and removed the contraction condition. In addition, they used the generative adversarial networks to create high-dimensional stationary time series and carried out a theoretical analysis. With the advice and assiatance of Prof Xu, Jianya Lu thoroughly studied the British teaching style and prepared a scientific research plan. After full preparation, he passed the interview and received the offer of Lecturer. Except for Lu Jianya, three of the four Ph.D. graduates from Prof Xu’s research team have taught in top universities in Mainland China. This shows that UM’s academic reputation, scientific research and educational level are widely recognized by the international.
