Dr. Vrushali A. BokilAssociate Professor
Department of Mathematics
Oregon State University
BackgroundProfessor 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 interestsDr. Bokil's general research interests are in the areas of numerical analysis and scientific computing. She is primarily interested in numerical methods in computational electromagnetics, including finite difference and finite element methods, fictitious domain methods, homogenization techniques and construction and discretization of perfectly matched layers. 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 of both deterministic and stochastic models for disease spread.
