Hong Qian received his B.S. degree in astrophysics from Peking University and obtained his Ph.D. degree in biochemistry from Washington University (St. Louis). His research interests turned to theoretical biophysica chemistry and mathematical biology when he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Oregon and at the California Institute of Technology. He joined the University of Washington in 1997 and is now professor of applied mathematics, and an adjunct professor of bioengineering. His long term interests are stochastic analysis and statistical physics of biological systems. His book “Chemical Biophysics: Quantitative Analysis of Cellular Systems”, co-authored with Daniel A. Beard, was published by the Cambridge University Press in 2008. One of his current interests is the applied mathematics underlying the stochastic dynamics of data as a discrete-state, discrete-time Markov processes; entropy theory, and stochastic thermodynamics, as well as their emergent nonlinear dynamics.
