Title: Associate Professor


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. Part of my research is supported by the National Science Foundation.


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 to the resolution of an open problem (then 5 years old) 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. I have contributed to the resolution of other open problems.


Secondary research interests: Mathematical Finance and various topics more or less connected to my main interests and on which I try my hands at times. I maintain a list of technical reports.

Teaching Fall 2014: Math 220 and Math 586
