Maolin started a postdoc in mathematics at the University of New England in 2014, immediately after completing a PhD at The University of Tokyo on nonlinear partial differential equations. Maolin’s current research focuses on reaction-diffusion equations, free boundary problems and eigenvalue estimates of second order elliptic operators.
