NameResearch/Related Courses
Hastings, AlanEnvironmental Studies and Mathematics. Theoretical population biology including mathematical ecology and mathematical genetics; qualitative theory of differential equations, differential delay equations, bifurcation theory.
Largier, John L.Study of hydrodynamics and dispersion in coastal ocean, including bays, estuaries and nearshore. Dispersion problems related to environmental issues, e.g., water quality, population ecology, algal blooms, estuarine habitat. Hydrodynamic problems include stratified flow, surface wind forcing, flow-topography interactions (e.g., jets, wakes, boundary layers), and waves/tides/internal waves.

Sanchirico, James N.Environmental and natural resource economics, mathematical ecology and epidemiology, optimal control theory, spatial and dynamic analysis of economic-ecological models, bioeconomic analysis, panel data econometric estimation.
Valdovinos, FernandaValdovinos studies the structure and dynamics of ecological networks at ecological and evolutionary scales; including their resilience to biodiversity loss, biological invasions, climate change, and exploitation by humans. Her main research lines include plant-pollinator systems and food-webs, which she studies using a combination of mathematical and computational approaches.
