Dr. Bai’s primary research interests include numerical algorithm design, analysis and software engineering for solving large-scale computational problems in science and engineering. He is one of developers of LAPACK, a software library for solving the most common problems in numerical linear algebra and is designed to supersede LINPACK and EISPACK. His current research work focuses on synergistic activities in designing and implementing numerical linear algebra algorithms for emerging computing environments and user communities in computational science and engineering. He serves on multiple editorial boards of journals in his research field, including SIAM Journal of Matrix Analysis and Applications, ACM Transactions on Mathematical Software, and Journal of Computational Mathematics. Dr. Bai holds a joint appointment with the Department of Computer Science at UC Davis.
