About:

Born and raised in China, Dr. Zhang has been residing in the U.S. since 2000. She speaks both fluent English and Mandarin. Before she joined Texas A&M University as a researcher, she worked as an assistant professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at The University of Akron. Throughout the years, she gained extensive experience teaching and tutoring college students at the freshmen/sophomore level engineering courses (e.g., Algebra, Calculus, College Physics, Engineering Mechanics) and at the junior/senior level water resources engineering courses. She is an expert in probability and statistics. She is enthusiastic, loving, caring, detailoriented, and super easy to work with.
