Research Advisors for Mathematical Physics

Bio ItemNicole Abaid , bio
Dr. Abaid's research focuses on networked dynamical systems. She studies diverse biological systems, ranging from animal groups to brain networks, to inspire novel results in mathematical modeling and control.

Bio ItemPaul Cazeaux , bio
Professor Cazeaux's research deals with multiscale phenomena in mathematical physics and biology, with recent applications in quantum chemistry and condensed matter physics (2D materials).

Bio ItemAndreas Deuchert (starting Fall 2024) , bio
My main research interests are mathematical quantum mechanics and quantum statistical mechanics. In my work, I develop analytic, functional analytic, and probabilistic methods with a focus on variational techniques to study mathematical problems originating from solidstate physics.

Bio ItemAlex Elgart , bio
Professor Elgart primary research area is mathematical physics. The mathematical tools he uses mostly come from analysis and probability.

Bio ItemMark Embree , bio
CMDA Program Director Professor Embree studies numerical linear algebra and spectral theory, with particular interest in eigenvalue computations for nonsymmetric matrices and transient behavior of dynamical systems.

Bio ItemLeo Herr (starting Fall 2024) , bio
My work is in algebraic geometry. I study varieties using extra combinatorial data called logarithmic structures which enrich and compactify ordinary varieties as a middleman between schemes and tropical geometry. Log structures help to count curves, study intersections, and construct cohomology theories and invariants that behave well for singular varieties and normal crossings pairs.

Bio ItemAgnieszka Miedlar , bio
Professor Miedlar conducts research in numerical analysis and scientific computing, with a focus on iterative solvers for largescale linear systems and eigenvalue problems, and adaptive finite element methods (AFEMs).
