    Webpage: http://www.math.uic.edu/~awanou/
    Participating in the Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Awards program: Yes

    Research Interest:
    My research interests are in the numerical analysis of partial differential equations. I design and analyze algorithms for applications in science and engineering. More information is available on my website http://www.math.uic.edu/~awanou.

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 3

    Qualifications of a Student:
    Students should have taken a class at the level of MATH 220: Differential equations.

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    The student is expected to write a review on research on discrete isoperimetric inequalities. The classical isoperimetric inequality relates the length of a closed curve to the area of the region it encloses. I will meet with the student weekly to discuss the topic. Connections between isoperimetric inequalities, numerical analysis and differential equations have provided new avenues of research.
