Tao Mei

Associate Professor of Mathematics
High Res Photo
Ph.D., Texas A&M university, 2006 (Advisor: Gilles Pisier)

Dr. Mei joined the Baylor faculty Aug. 2015. Prior to coming to Baylor he taught at Wayne State University (2010-2015) and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (2006-2010). He obtained his Ph.D. at Texas A&M University. He has traveled extensively throughout the world and, in particular, frequently to work with colleagues in France, Spain, and China. His hobbies include chess, ice skating and tennis (on table and on court). Dr. Mei is a co-organizer of the regional semi-annual Brazos Analysis seminar (jointly with Mehrdad Kalantar from U. Houston and Michael Brannan from Texas A&M University).

Academic Interests and Research:
• Functional analysis/Harmonic Analysis; e.g. Operator (Matrix)-Valued function spaces, Fourier multipliers on nonabelian discrete groups/von Neumann algebras, Semigroups of operators, Noncommutative Lp spaces/Operator spaces.
• Stochastic processes; e.g. Maximal inequalities for martingales, Probability method of solving problem in analysis, Noncommutative Martingales.
