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. Dr. Mei is a cofounder of the NSF supported regional semi-annual Brazos Analysis seminar (jointly with Mehrdad Kalantar from U. Houston and Michael Brannan from Texas A&M University). He is also running the online noncommutative analysis seminar VNAWS .

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