Dr. Samuel Feng earned his PhD in Applied and Computational Mathematics from Princeton University (Princeton, USA) in 2012. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Rice University (Houston, USA) in 2007, also in applied mathematics.
After graduation, Dr. Feng received the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award Postdoctoral Fellowship, which he served out as a member of the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. During this time, he applied mathematical modeling and applied statistical techniques to complex and large sets of neural data. He was particularly interested in non-Gaussian noise processes in neural decision making.
Dr. Feng joined the Khalifa University of Science, Technology and Research (KUSTAR) faculty in 2014 as an assistant professor of mathematics. Since then, he has grown his collaborations both locally and abroad, working on a wide array of applications involving collaborations with Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and even Etihad Airways.
