McNicholl jumps in to help with Precalc conference over the summer, other new colleagues arrive in the Fall
Timothy McNicholl (PhD, mathematics, The George Washington University) As an associate professor at Lamar University, McNicholl’s research interests included theory of computation, complex analysis, computable analysis, Green’s function for unbounded domains, conformal mapping of multiply connected domains, Dirichlet problems for multiply connected domains, computation of boundary extensions of conformal maps, multi-resolution cellular automata and computational pursuit-evasion games.
|Jessica Conway (PhD, applied mathematics, Northwestern) Conway, who held a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of British Columbia, is interested in using mathematics to gain insight into physical/biological systems. Recently she used a stochastic approach to a within-host disease problem: investigating mechanisms for viral persistence in treated HIV+ patients, developing a numerical method to extract from a branching process model the evolving probability distributions over time of viral/cellular species to improve understanding of HIV dynamics and eradication timing.||Songting Luo (PhD, mathematics, UC-Irvine) As a visiting assistant professor with Michigan State University, Luo’s research focus was on numerical methods for partial differential equations with applications, especially on (1) multiscale and multiphysics modeling and computation of nano optical responses, nano optics; (2) computational high frequency wave propagation, geometrical optics and beyond; and (3) Hamilton-Jacobi equations with applications, homogenization||James Rossmanith (PhD, applied mathematics, University of Washington) As an assistant professor at UW-Madison, Rossmanith’s research focus is on numerical methods for nonlinear hyperbolic PDEs. In particular, he works on high-order shock-capturing methods, including wave propagation, discontinuous Galerkin, and residual distribution schemes, for PDEs that arise in application areas such as plasma physics, gas kinetic theory, and relativistic fluid dynamics.|
