Associate Professor Yuqing Lin

What are your research interests?

  1. I have been working on Graph Theory, Discrete Math and Discrete Optimisation for the past 15 years. For example, I have been looking at the structural properties of some molecular graphs to study the properties of corresponding chemical compound or DNAs.   
  2. Software Engineering - I have been working on Software Engineering for the past seven years, my main focus being on Software Resue and Software Quality Assurance.

Why did you get into research?

Look at the remarkable success of mathematics in describing the natural world, and also those beautiful mathematical formulations, how could you resist?!

What would be the ultimate goal for your research?

To see mathematics is better used in solving real world problems. 


Associate Professor Lin has a unique set of knowledge and skills from both Mathematics and Software Engineering, and works to transfer these theoretical results into practical health solutions.

Associate Professor Lin has published numerous peer-reviewed articles in the Graph Theory, Discrete Math and Software Engineering as well as presentations at many prestigious national and international conferences. He was awarded the Pro Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Research Publication in the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment in 2011 and 2012, highlighting the top quality of the research Lin conducts.

Associate Professor Lin has also been awarded many competitive grants, including an Australian Research Council grant and an Australia-China Collaboration Grant in 2011.
