I work in the field of applied and computational mathematics. My work
involves mathematical modeling and analysis of PDEs, numerical and
functional analysis, probability, and other sciences and
engineering. My projects with students and
collaborators range from rigorous analysis through algorithm
development to applied simulations inspired by interdisciplinary
applications and data science.
Details on my professional activities are in my full CV and in short bio.
I have been at Oregon State since 2003. Previously, I held positions at the University of Texas at Austin (ICES and Mathematics); Purdue University; Polish Academy of Sciences; Warsaw University of Technology. I also was a short-term visitor elsewhere. I received PhD in Mathematics (1992) from University of Augsburg, Germany under the direction of Prof. Karl-Heinz Hoffmann; see my mathematical genealogy. My MS is in Applied Math (1986), and Habilitation in Mathematics (2011), from Warsaw University of Technology.
