Gui-Qiang George Chen's main research areas lie in nonlinear partial differential equations, nonlinear analysis, and their connections/applications to mechanics, geometry, other areas of mathematics and the other sciences. His recent research interests include nonlinear conservation laws, nonlinear waves, nonlinear equations of mixed type, free boundary problems, and geometric problems. His research interests also include measure-theoretical analysis, weak convergence methods, stochastic partial differential equations, statistical physics, and numerical analysis. He has published more than 150 original research papers and more than 10 research books and book chapters.
He now serves on the Royal Society Newton International Fellowship Board (2013-15). He was Chair (2009-10) and Program Director (2005-06) of Activity Group on Analysis of Partial Differential Equations, Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics, USA; Chair of the Organizing Committee, SIAM Conference on Analysis of Partial Differential Equations (2006); a Member of the AMS-MAA Program Committee for the Joint Annual National Meetings (2008), American Mathematical Society Scientific Committee for the Joint International Meeting with Shanghai Mathematical Society (2008), AMS Program Committee for the Annual Meeting (2009), and Committee for National Meetings of American Mathematical Society (2007-10); Panelist of National Science Foundation (1999-2011) and Austrian Science Fund (2012); and a Member of Research Council of Norway (2005-09). He has been a Chair, or an Organizer/Co-organizer, or a Member of the Scientific Committees, of more than 100 International Conferences, Workshops, Symposia, Summer Schools, and Emphasis Years since 1991.
