ZHU Xiping
ZHU Xiping (male), born in June, 1962. Zhu got his doctor’s degree of science from Chinese Academy of Science in 1989, and has been working at department of mathematics in Sun Yat-sen University from then on. He works as the doctoral supervisor as well as the dean of the faculty. Zhu won the National Science Foundation for Distinguished Young Scholars of China in 1998, and was selected as Ministry of Personnel’s Talents Project’s first and second-level candidate the next year. He was hired as the Distinguished Professor of Cheung Kong Scholars Program from September 2001 to September 2006. In 1991, Zhu won the second prize of Natural Science Award of Chinese Academy of Science, and in December 2004, he won the ICCM Morningside Medal of Mathematics. From October 2009 to now, he was hired as the Chair Professor of Yat-sen Scholars from Sun Yat-sen University.

Professor Zhu has been engaged in research of Pure Mathematics. He has made a series of important contributions to the field of geometry and topology of manifolds. Zhu solved several world-famous Mathematics open problems and conjectures. For example, he solved the Gromov conjecture and Schoen conjecture on the classification of four-dimensional manifolds with positive isotropic curvature, established the fundamental uniqueness theorem of Ricci Flow Theory, made some contributions to Hamilton-Perelman theory on Poincare and Thurston’s geometrization conjecture, proved Hamilton's conjecture on Type II singularities of the Ricci flow, and partially solved Yau’s uniformization conjecture, etc.

Zhu has fostered nearly ten math doctors, one of whom won the 100 National Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Awards, and another one won the National Science Foundation for Distinguished Young Scholars of China.
