Xu-Jia Wang (Chinese: 汪徐家; born September 1963) is a Chinese-Australian mathematician. He is a professor of mathematics at the Australian National University and a fellow of the Australian Academy of Science.


Wang was born in Chun'an County, Zhejiang province, China. In July 1983, Wang graduated from the Department of Mathematics of Zhejiang University (ZJU) in Hangzhou, and obtained his BS. From 1983 to 1987, Wang was a masters student and teaching assistant at the same department of ZJU. From 1987 to Jul 1990, Wang did his doctorate study focused on partial differential equations at the mathematical department of ZJU.[1]

After completion of his PhD, Wang served as lecturer, later associate professor, at the mathematical department of ZJU. In 1995 Wang went to Australia as a researcher. Currently, Wang is Professor in the Centre for Mathematics and its Applications, and Mathematical Sciences Institute of Australian National University.

Wang is well known for his work on differential equations, especially non-linear partial differential equations and their geometrical and transportational applications. Australian mathematician Neil S. Trudinger is his longtime collaborator.

Honors and awards[edit]

Wang was the awardee of the Australian Mathematical Society Medal in 2002.[2] Wang was invited to present his research at the 2002 International Congress of Mathematicians. In March 2009, Wang was elected into the Australian Academy of Science as a Fellow.[3]
