About me

Bao Truong joined the NMU Mathematics and Computer Science Department faculty in fall 2008. He received his Ph.D. in applied mathematics from Wayne State University (WSU) in 2008 and his B.S. in applied mathematics from Ho Chi Minh University of Science, Vietnam. Bao worked as a lecturer for three years in the Department of Mathematics and Informatics at the University of Science in Vietnam before studying at WSU with a graduate teaching assistant scholarship.  His areas of research interest include variational analysis, nonsmooth analysis, generalized differentiation, multiobjective optimization, welfare economics.
