    Email Address:
    College: Liberal Arts and Sciences Department: Math, Statistics, and Computer Science
    Title: Professor
    Office: SEO 1206 Phone: 312-4132567
    Participating in the Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Awards program: Yes

    Research Interest:
    My primary research interests are in fluid mechanics, oceanography and the associated partial differential equations. I also work in numerical analysis and have some experience in economic theory and mathematical biology.

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 6

    Qualifications of a Student:
    Knowledge of differential equations and some experience working in MATLAB or similar software. Familiarity with elementary numerical analysis would also be helpful.

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    Helping to improve a model of nearshore zone wave-bottom interaction. This will involve modeling, building a numerical scheme for the model, testing the scheme and then using the code to make predictions of sand bar movement.
