The Future of AMS at Mines

It is the explicit belief of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics that our junior faculty are the future of the department. We have four excellent assistant/associate professors engaged in compelling research in the field of computational and applied mathematics. We welcome you to learn more about their work:


Soutir Bandyopadhyay
Associate Professor

"My core research approaches problems in two different areas of Statistics: (1) Analysis for spatial and time series data, and (2) Bioinformatics. My expertise lies in developing novel inferential procedures under spatial (and/or temporal) dependence and investigating their asymptotic properties. Although my research is primarily methodological in nature, it has always been motivated by and applied to problems arising from practical situations in various areas such as climate science, environmental studies, finance, and biomedical studies, among others."


Cecilia Diniz Behn
Assistant Professor

"My research focuses on multiscale mathematical modeling of metabolism, sleep, and circadian rhythms.  Through the development and rigorous analysis of data-driven models, I seek to integrate experimental data across spatial and temporal scales to address key research questions in these fields."  


Karin Leiderman
Assistant Professor

"My research is focused on using mathematics, mathematical modeling,
and numerical computation to gain insight into the complex biological world around us. More specifically, I work on computational modeling of all things blood clotting: biological fluid dynamics, biomechanics, and biochemistry, as well as flow through porous materials, development of numerical methods for low Re flows, and scientific computing."


Steve Pankavich
Assistant Professor

"My general research interests focus on modeling, analysis, and computational simulation of phenomena arising in biology, physics, and chemistry using ordinary, stochastic, and partial differential equations to better understand the underlying scientific behavior in such systems.  My group and I have worked within an immense variety of fields including plasma physics, computational virology, in-host disease dynamics, spatial epidemiology, imperfectly-mixed chemical reactions, and general relativity.  To solve such a wide range of applied problems, we utilize use a number of tools including mathematical estimates, asymptotic and multiscale analysis, dynamical techniques, and sensitivity measures, as well as, Lagrangian, Eulerian, and multiscale numerical methods."
