After many years at the University of Illinois at Chicago I now have a new home at the University of Southern California
where I am a Professor in the Mathematics Department and Director of the Center for Applied Mathematical Sciences.
My research centers on the partial differential equations that describe the motion of fluids, namely the Euler and the
Navier-Stokes equations. I am currently working in topics connected with fluid instabilities and mathematical models for turbulence.
I am the Editor in Chief of the Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society.
My other roles in the AMS have included
- Associate Secretary
- Member of the Council of the AMS
- Chair of the Colloquium Publication Series
- Member, Editorial Board of the Notices of the AMS
I have organized many meetings of the AMS including these AMS International Meetings
- AMS - South Africa
- AMS - Australia
- AMS - Spain
- AMS - India
- AMS - Germany and Austria
- AMS - Poland
- AMS - Shanghai
- AMS - Mexico
My favorite recent conference that I co-organized is the 85th Birthday Fest for Cathleen Morawetz at the Fields Institute.
