The mission of the Division of Applied Mathematics rests on research, education, and scholarship. We focus our research and teaching on a wide range of areas from applied and algorithmic problems to the study of fundamental mathematical questions. In particular, we explore the connections between mathematics and its applications in biology, chemistry, engineering, geosciences, neuroscience, physics and other disciplines at the research and educational levels. Our educational efforts are realized primarily through our graduate PhD program and our four undergraduate concentrations.
It is with great pleasure that we announce that Kavita Ramanan has been elected as a Fellow of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS). She was honored for her fundamental contributions to the theory of stochastic processes, stochastic networks and associated fluid and diffusion approximations, including Skorokhod problems and measure-valued processes. This honor is reserved for few select members, and this year only 12 members have been elected fellows.
