Department Chair: Dr. Eric Forgoston
The Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics is committed to the study and development of mathematical disciplines in order to solve real-world problems that society is currently facing. The curriculum emphasizes the synthesis of mathematics, statistics, and computation to solve a wide variety of relevant problems. Department research areas include data-driven analysis, financial mathematics, fluid mechanics, mathematical biology, nonlinear dynamical systems, scientific computing, and statistics. Faculty research programs are funded by the Army Research Office (ARO), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Office of Naval Research (ONR).
