Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Du joined the Glenville State faculty in 2014 in the Department of Science and Mathematics. He teaches both math general education courses, such as Introduction to College Math, College Algebra, Trigonometry and upper-level mathematics, such as Calculus Sequence, Discrete Mathematics, Linear Algebra, and Abstract Algebra. His research interests include continuum mechanics, polycrystalline materials, crystallographic texture, contact deformation of materials, mechanical behavior of materials, and micromechanics of advanced materials.

Professor Du also earned the 2022 Glenville State University Faculty Award of Excellence.
