Faculty

Reza Zadeh


Reza Zadeh focuses on discrete applied mathematics, machine learning theory and applications, and large-scale distributed computing. He has built large-scale distributed algorithms for the singular value decomposition on Spark, built the machine learning behind Twitter's who-to-follow system, and created other large-scale distributed machine learning systems.

Margot Gerritsen


Margot Gerritsen's main interest is the design and analysis of efficient numerical solution methods for partial differential equations that arise in fluid dynamics. Her PhD thesis work emphasized mathematical techniques. Since, her focus has shifted to using such techniques for actual engineering applications.

Michael Saunders


Saunders develops mathematical methods for solving large-scale constrained optimization problems and large systems of equations. He also implements such methods as general-purpose software to allow their use in many areas of engineering, science, and business. He is co-developer of the large-scale optimizers MINOS, SNOPT, SQOPT, PDCO and the linear equation solvers SYMMLQ, MINRES, MINRES-QLP, LSQR, LSMR, and LUSOL.
