Baylor he held a research position in University of London (1989-1990), a visiting professor position in Baylor University (2003) and faculty positions in National University of Singapore (1990-1995), University of Louisiana (1996-2001) and University of Dayton (2001-2005). He was a recipient of the J. T. Knight Prize in Mathematics (1987) and Lundgren Research Award (1989). Dr. Sheng was an invited research participant of the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, England (2007). He was a U.S. Air Force SFFP Research Fellow (2005-2007). Dr. Sheng directed two doctoral dissertations, 8 Master of Science theses and a number of undergraduate research theses. He is married to Helen. They have sons Andy and Dan. He enjoys reading, painting, traveling and spending time with the family.Dr. Sheng's research is in computational mathematics. In particular, he is interested in splitting and adaptive methods for solving singular partial differential equations. He has been involved in cross-disciplinary projects in scientific and engineering computations. Dr. Sheng has been active in his research fields and community. He is on editorial boards of several scholarly journals and special research issues. His projects have been supported by the United States Air Force Research Laboratory and Department of Defense.
