News and Announcements

Mark your calendars for our mini-conference, which will take place on Thursday, February 15, all afternoon. There will be inspiring talks by GGAM faculty, a poster session, and a reception.
GGAM member Professor Alan Hastings (Dept. of Environmental Science and Policy) will speak about "Dynamics and control of spatial ecological populations" in the MBI online colloquium, Wednesday, February 14th.
Read about new Krener Assistant Professor Paloma Gutierrez Castillo's work in fluid mechanics; the research highlight "Quantum States of Matter" by GGAM member Prof. Bruno Nachtergaele; an update on recent Applied Math Ph.D. alumni, including 2013 alumna Wenjing Liao, who is now a tenure-track assistant professor at Georgia Tech; and more.
Among the speakers: New GGAM member, Dr. Shiqian Ma (Department of Mathematics). He works on theory and algorithms of optimization and its various applications in areas like machine learning, statistics, signal processing, image processing, bioinformatics, etc.
Professor Liu is committed to graduate education in the applied mathematical research areas. In particular, she is interested in the area of data-driven resource management and control, where she uses machine learning and optimization techniques to improve the performance of networks.
GGAM Faculty members received prestigious awards. Jesús De Loera received the 2017 MAA Golden Section Teaching Award. James Bremer was named a 2016–17 UC Davis Chancellor's Fellow. Terry Nathan received the 2016 Award for Excellence in Graduate Mentoring. Phillip Rogaway received the 2016 Levchin Prize.
