Applied Mathematics

Applied Mathematics

Our mission rests in research, education, and scholarship.

Our faculty engages in research in a range of areas from applied and algorithmic problems to the study of fundamental mathematical questions. By its nature, our work is and always has been inter- and multi-disciplinary. Among the research areas represented in the Division are dynamical systems and partial differential equations, control theory, probability and stochastic processes, numerical analysis and scientific computing, fluid mechanics, computational molecular biology, statistics, and pattern theory.

Patrick is interested in probability theory and its applications. His current work focuses on questions arising from random matrix theory, statistical mechanics, and high-dimensional statistics and is particularly interested in universality phenomena, where the large-scale behavior of a probabilistic model turns out to be independent of the small-scale details of its construction. He is also interested in teaching, especially student-centered approaches to instruction. In his free time, he enjoys running and photography.

NSF Fellow and Prager Assistant Professor Cole Graham

Cole works at the interface of analysis and probability. He is interested in universal phenomena arising in reaction-diffusion equations and stochastic branching processes. In parallel, he studies fluid models like Burgers' equation through deterministic and stochastic lenses. Going forward, Cole also hopes to develop projects at the intersection of math and climate/energy studies. In his spare time, he enjoys baking, hiking, and Daft Punk.

APMA Peer Advising

Our program provides a new and flexible type of advising: instead of assigning you to just one advisor, this website allows open access to our entire team of advisors in order to give you a broader range of perspectives.
