  1. 1. Chun Tang Green Card Holder, authorized to work in the U.S. School of Engineering, University of California Merced, CA 95343 / Tel: (702) 286 3089 Education: Ph.D in Mechanical Engineering, Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Nanjing, China 2002-2009 B.S. in aircraft design, Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Nanjing, China 1998-2002 Self-Study: Data Science Specialization, Johns Hopkins University Coursera Courses 2015 Program Skills: R, Python, Fortran, C, LAMMPs, CAD, SIESTA, VASP, Hyperchem. Mathematical and Statistics Background: Statistics, Probability and Stochastic Process, Differential Methods and Finite Elements, Methods of Mathematical Physics, Numerical Methods, logistic regression, linear regression. Professional Experience: University of California, Merced, CA (2012-2015) Associate Specialist and Lecturer, School of Engineering, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, NV (2006-2011) Visiting Scholar and Post-Doctoral Scholar, Department of Physics  Used multivariable regression model to analyze the impacts of multiple factors on performance of commercial products (eg. The effects of weight, transmission, cylinder, horse power, etc. on MPG of cars).  Using logistic regression model, performed analysis on the patterns of sports events or business sales (eg. The winning probability based on a football team’s statistics, visiting patterns of users to commercial websites).  Developed numerical inter-atomic potential functions for studying interactions between potassium and chloride elements, and potential functions between KCl and Fe. The potentials have been used by colleagues in computer simulations.  Using numerical simulations, proposed a self-assembly process for design high performance photovoltaic devices, the model is validated by experiments.  Developed a theoretical model for interpreting experimentally observed abnormal frictional characteristics by the University of Pennsylvania team.
  2. 2.  Using quantum mechanical theory, calculated electronical band structures of hybrid two dimensional materials based on boron, carbon and nitrogen, predicted semiconducting to metal transition in such materials.  Using numerical simulations, systematically investigated effect of various conditions on mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes. Analysis of the massive data yield several key discoveries of novel properties within this material.
