Yue He has been an associate professor in the school of mathematics sciences at Nanjing Normal University since 2009. His primary research interest lies in the interface of Partial Differential Equations and Differential Geometry. He earned his PhD from Fudan University under the supervision of Jia-Xing Hong (洪家兴)(2003.6) and received his MA degree

and BS degree from Yunnan University, Guang-Jun Yang(杨光俊) and Chao-Chun Qu (屈超纯) (1995.7), Lin Wang (汪林) (1992.7), respectively. He was a post-doctoral in the school of mathematics & computing science at Sun Yat-sen University under the supervision of Xi-Ping Zhu (朱熹平) (2004.7–2006.11). Previously he taught at Yunnan University of Finance and Economics (1995.7–2003.7) and Nanjing Normal University (2003.8–now).
