McKnight Presidential Professor of Mathematics
School of Mathematics, University of Minnesota
I am a mathematician and an educator. My research mostly concerns
numerical analysis, partial differential equations, mechanics, and the interplay
between these fields. Much of my recent effort has been directed toward the
development of the finite element exterior calculus. In 2009 and 2010 I served as
president of SIAM, the
largest applied mathematics and computational science professional organization in
the world. From 2001 to 2008 I directed the IMA,
the world's leading interdisciplinary mathematical research institute.
