Yuan‑Jen Chiang, Professor of Mathematics, earned a Ph.D. (1989) and an M.A. (1985) in mathematics from Johns Hopkins University, and a B.S. (1979) in mathematics from National Taiwan Normal University (Taipei, Taiwan). She is a recipient of a Waple Professorship, 2016-2018. She published a research book, Developments of Harmonic Maps, Wave Maps and Yang-Mills Fields into Biharmonic Maps, Biwave Maps and Bi-Yang-Mills Fields in the series Frontiers in Mathematics by Birkhauser-Springer in Europe in 2013.
Dr. Chiang has published about 30 research articles in refereed journals including Notices of American Mathematical Society, International Journal of Mathematics, Proceedings of American Mathematical Society, Journal of Geometry, Communications in Contemporary Mathematics, Journal of Geometry and Physics, Bulletin of French Mathematical Society, Bulletin of Institute of Mathematics Academia Sinica, Annals of Global Analysis and Geometry, International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences, JP Journal of Geometry and Physics, etc. She has delivered many presentations at universities and international conferences in the U.S., China, Spain, France, Italy, Poland, Greece, South Korea, India, Bulgaria, Chile, and Taiwan.
Since 1991, Dr. Chiang has been a reviewer of Mathematical Review (American Mathematical Society), and has written reviews for approximately 100 scholarly papers on differential geometry and global analysis. She received grants including 15 Mary Washington Faculty Research Grants and three Jepson Funds for Excellence Grants. Dr. Chiang received a sabbatical leave for visiting the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the fall of 2001. She is a member of the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America.
