  • Biography

    I received a PhD in physics from UC Berkeley in 1989. After that I moved into applied math via a series of postdocs. I spent 23 years in the applied math dept. at Northwestern University before moving to the University of Chicago in 2016. There is a small group of applied mathematicians in the statistics dept. at U.Chicago, hired as part of a Computational and Applied Math Initiative here. We launched a PhD program in computational and applied math here in 2017 and I am the director of that. 

    My research interests are in dynamical systems, bifurcation theory, pattern formation and I'm most excited right now about applications in climate and ecology.
