Professor Bokil received her Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Houston in 2003 under the direction of Dr. Roland Glowinski. Before coming to Oregon State University, she was a postdoctoral research associate at the Center for Research in Scientific Computation at North Carolina State University , under the mentorship of Dr. H.T. Banks.

Research interests

Dr. Bokil's general research interests are in the areas of mathematical modeling, numerical analysis and scientific computing. She is primarily involved in the construction, analysis and simulation of novel numerical methods for Maxwell's equations in a variety of different linear and nonlinear materials, an area broadly termed as computational electromagnetics. Dr. Bokil is also interested in problems in mathematical biology and epidemiology that involve aspects of population dynamics and spatial ecology. Her work in this area involves modeling, analysis and simulation involving both deterministic and stochastic models for disease spread.
