After receiving his Ph.D. in 1969 from the University of Toronto in Canada, Dr. Chiu Yeung Chan began his career as Assistant Professor at the Florida State University. He was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 1973 and to Professor in 1981. In 1982, Dr. Chan came to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (formerly known as University of Southwestern Louisiana) as a tenured Professor to help build the Ph.D. program. He was department head from 1993 to 2000. Dr. Chan received the Distinguished Professor award in 1988, and has received the Pennzoil Endowed Professor award since 1993. He is on the editorial boards of six international refereed research journals. The main research interests of Dr. Chan are in nonlinear partial differential equations, applied analysis, mathematical modeling, and computational mathematics. He has more than 130 refereed research publications, and has finished directing solely twenty-one Ph.D. students at UL Lafayette. Currently, he is directing one.
