Published Nov 05, 2014

Dr. Mark H. Weichold, dean and CEO of Texas A&M University at Qatar, has announced the appointment of three faculty fellows: Dr. Tingwen Huang, Dr. James Rogers and Dr. Bing Guo.

Huang has been named Dean’s Fellow for Recognition of Faculty’s Excellence and Achievements, a position in which Huang will coordinate Texas A&M at Qatar's efforts to nominate and promote our faculty members for university-wide and/or international awards. Huang will be the focal point to explore opportunities for the recognition of our faculty members. In addition, he will lead the efforts to prepare the nomination packets and materials with support from program chairs, faculty members at Texas A&M at Qatar andTexas A&M, and other colleagues from academia and industry.

Huang is a mathematics professor in the Science Program. He joined the Texas A&M at Qatar faculty in 2003 as an assistant professor and was previously a visiting assistant professor at Texas A&M in College Station. His research interests are in the areas of chaos and its applications; synchronization of chaos; stability and bifurcation of neural networks and their applications; dynamics of complex networks; and partial differential equations and semi-groups. He holds a bachelor's degree from Southwest Normal University, a master's degree from Sichuan University and a Ph.D. from Texas A&M.

Rogers was named Dean’s Fellow for Mentorship of Early Career Faculty Members. This dean’s fellow coordinates Texas A&M at Qatar's efforts to develop and provide mentorship opportunities for early-career faculty members. Rogers will work with program chairs, faculty members at Texas A&M at Qatar andTexas A&M, and other colleagues from academia and industry to develop mentorship opportunities that may include peer-teaching evaluations; input on research proposals; developing collaboration with leading faculty members, researchers and industry professionals; and guidance on professional service.

Rogers holds a joint appointment as associate professor of political science at Texas A&M and at Texas A&M at Qatar. He holds two earned doctorates, a Ph.D. in political science and a J.D. in law. Rogers also holds an M.A. in economics and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Nebraska with four undergraduate majors. Rogers is a fellow with the Institute for Science, Technology and Public Policy at the Bush School of Government and Public Service. From 2008 to 2013 he was head of the political science department at Texas A&M in College Station and was editor of the Journal of Theoretical Politics from 2006 through 2013. He specializes in the use of mathematical models to analyze political phenomena, focusing on the design and engineering of political and legal institutions. He teaches graduate courses in political institutions and public administration, as well as in game theory and mathematical modeling. He teaches undergraduate courses in constitutional law, comparative state constitutions, law and legislation, and research methods.

Guo has been named the Dean’s Fellow for High-impact Learning and Teaching with Technology and will  develop and coordinate programs that focus on high-impact learning for students and teaching with technology across the Texas A&M at Qatar programs. Examples of high-impact learning can be seen at The teaching with technology activities will be coordinated with the current programs and infrastructure support being developed and promoted by Information Technology.

Guo is an assistant professor in the Mechanical Engineering Program. His teaching and research interests include engineering mechanics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, computational fluid dynamics, aerosol mechanics and technology, design of experiments, synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials, nanomaterial-based sensors, nanotoxicology, health effects of aerosols, air pollutant formation and control, sampling of gaseous effluents from nuclear facilities, transport of air contaminants in the environment and in sampling lines. He holds bachelor's, master's and Ph.D. degrees from Tsinghua University.
