金石教授的研究兴趣广泛，在计算流体力学、双曲型守恒律方程、动理学模型、高频波计算、多尺度问题和粒子系统等领域的计算方法和分析方面均取得了许多突破性的成果，其中像多尺度问题中的渐进保持格式、双曲型守恒率中的松弛逼近等更是引领了各自方向的发展。他培养出了25位博士研究生，多数在如北京大学、清华大学、威斯康星大学、明尼苏达大学等国内外知名大学任职，多位获得过Sloan Fellowship和美国NSF CAREER奖及中国国家级青年学者奖励。
Brief Introduction of Professor Shi Jin
Prof. Shi Jin is currently the director of Institute of Natural Sciences, a Chair Professor of School of Mathematical Sciences, in Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He also serves as a co-director of the Shanghai National Center for Applied Mathematics. Prof. Jin got his bachelor degree from Peking University in 1983, and PhD degree from University of Arizona in 1991. He did his post-doc research work at the Courant Institute and then joined Georgia Institute of Technology as an Assistant Professor. Between 2000 and 2018, he was a full professor (and later the Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor) in the Department of Mathematics at University of Wisconsin-Madison, and serving as the department chair for three years.
Prof. Jin's main research interests include the computational methods and analysis in fluid mechanics, hyperbolic conservation laws, kinetic theory, quantum dynamics, interacting particle systems, and multiscale problems. He has done many influential research works in these fields. He is well known for his research in asymptotic preserving schemes for multiscale problems and the relaxation approximation for hyperbolic conservation laws, which led to new research directions in the past decades. He has supervised 25 PhD students, and many of them are working in world-class universities such as Peking University, Tsinghua University, University of Wisconsin-Madison and University of Minnesota, etc. Some of his former students won prestigious awards such as the Sloan Fellowship and US NSF CAREER Awards and national awards for young researchers in China.
Due to these outstanding achievements, Prof. Jin has been awarded the Feng Kang prize from Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Distinguished Overseas Young Scientist Award from National Science Foundation of China. He was an Invited Speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians in 2018. He was elected a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society, a Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, and a Fellow of China Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics. In 2011, he was elected a Foreign Member of Academia Europaea-Academy of Europe, and a fellow of European Academy of Sciences.
