Teaching Spring 2016: Math 220, Math 586
Short Bio: I received my Ph.D. in mathematics in 2003 from the University of Georgia and spent two years as a postdoctoral associate at the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications, University of Minnesota. I then worked at Northern Illinois University for seven years before coming to UIC in 2012. In 2009, I was awarded a Sloan Fellowship.
Primary research interests: Numerical Analysis of Partial Differential Equations
In a series of papers, I recently explained why standard discretizations work for the Monge-Ampere equation, a decade old open problem. Earlier in my carrier, I contributed, with D. Arnold and R. Winther, to the resolution of an open problem on finite element methods for symmetric tensors. I also obtained (with D. Arnold) other significant and dramatic results on the serendipity finite elements and new finite element differential forms.
