We are excited to add Dr. Mina Karzand of the Department of Statistics as the newest member of GGAM. Her areas of interest include Theoretical Machine Learning and Applied Probability: Sequential Learning, Graphical Models, Optimization Theory.
Dr. Xiaoli Dong's research focuses on spatial self-organization (pattern formation) applied to ecosystems and landscapes, primarily using reaction diffusion models.
We proudly welcome Dr. Mitrovic Slobodan!
​A full professor in the Department of Mathematics and current department chair, we enthusiastically welcome Dr. Anne Schilling to GGAM.
We are thrilled to add another amazing mind to GGAM
Assistant Professor in Mathematics joins GGAM to add to our great minds in data science.
We are so pleased to have a new voice from Materials Science & Engineering.
Please join us in congratulating Prof. Javier Arsuaga as the new Graduate Group in Applied Mathematics Program Chair. We are grateful for Prof. Jesus DeLoera's tireless dedication to the program and its students.
Dr. Iyer joins us from Princeton University's Department of Mathematics where he completed a 3 year NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship. Dr. Iyer graduated with his Ph.D from Brown University under the guidance of Prof. Yan Guo
Joseph Michael Teran Professor, Mathematics Snow Business: Scientific Computing in the Movies and Beyond
Dr. Ding is currently a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of California Davis. From 2018-2020, He was a research associate at Duke University working with Hau-Tieng Wu. Before that, he earned his PhD in statistics in 2018 from the University of Toronto under the supervision of Jeremy Quastel.
