Professor Siu A. Chin received his B.S. degree from MIT in 1971 and his Ph.D. from Stanford University in 1975. He was a research associate at the University of Illinois from 1975-1978 and at MIT from 1978-1980. Prof. Chin was adjunct assistant professor at UCLA from 1980 to 1984, and joined the Texas A&M faculty in 1984.Professor Chin's research interests include nuclear and subnuclear high density matter, Monte Carlo calculations of quantum many-body problems such as helium droplets, Bose-Einstein condensate, quantum dots and the development of new quantum Monte Carlo and classical symplectic algorithms for solving diverse physical problems based on forward-time factorization schemes.
