About Dr. Niu

Zhuang Niu joined the University of Wyoming faculty in 2012. He came to the University of Wyoming from the Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada, at which he was a tenure-track assistant professor for three years.

His research interests are in operator algebras, K-theory, and dynamical systems, which are linked through the study of noncommutative topological spaces. He has published over 15 articles in these research areas.
