Interview with Nancy Kopell

Interview with Nancy Kopell

We interviewed Nancy Kopell, the winner of SIAM’s 2013 Jürgen Moser Lecture prize for her lifetime contributions in applied dynamical systems, about mathematics, her career, current frontiers in mathematical neuroscience, and more. Nancy is a professor at Boston University in the Department of Mathematics & Statistics, is Director of their Cognitive Rhythms Collaborative, and is Co-Director of the Center for Computational Neuroscience & Neural Technology. Nancy has won numerous awards and made pioneering contributions to dynamical systems, mathematical neuroscience, and mathematical biology more generally. Take a look at her website and her Society for Neuroscience biography for more details.

Interview with Masato Nagata

Interview with Masato Nagata

In 1990, Masato Nagata published the first ever computation of fully nonlinear, finite-amplitude invariant solutions in planar Couette flow. In his paper, he mixed dynamical systems theory, fluid dynamics and computational science, and it has garnered nearly three hundred citations over the years and has had an enourmous impact on the analysis of turbulence as a dynamical system. In this interview, Prof. Nagata shares some of the long, arduous and occasionally joyful journey to this landmark contribution.

Student Feature – John C. Lang

Student Feature – John C. Lang

John Lang is currently working with Dr. P.J. Lamberson as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Communication Studies at the University of California Los Angeles. He recently completed a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics at the University of Waterloo under the supervision of Dr. Hans de Sterck (now at Monash University) and in collaboration with Dr. Daniel Abrams (Northwestern University). His Ph.D. thesis focused on modeling social processes at both the individual and population levels. He previously completed an M.Sc. in Econometrics and Mathematical Economics at the London School of Economics and Political Science, an M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics at the University of Alberta, and an M.Sc. (Honors) in Mathematics at the University of British Columbia.
