Welcome to Lei Zhang's Homepage    


I am now a research professor (tenure track) at School of Mathematical Sciences of USTC. Before joining USTC, I was a member of School of Math., Shaanxi Normal University (2011-2018).

I got my Bachelor's degree from Tianjin University (2001-2005) and Ph.D. from Peking University (Supervised by Prof. Jin-Xing Cai, 2005-2011). Here is my CV.
