A Brief Bio
Silvia Jimenez Bolanos is currently
a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department
Mathematics at Colgate
University. She was a Visiting Assistant
Professor in the Department of
Mathematical Sciences at Worcester
Polytechnic Institute from 2010 to 2013. She
obtained her Ph.D. in Mathematics at
Her current research centers on Homogenization of Nonlinear Elliptic Partial
Differential Equations. She
is interested in researching the effect of microstructure
on the solution of Partial Differential Equations.
"Mathematics is not a deductive science, that's a cliche. When you try to prove a theorem, you don't just list the hypotheses, and then start to reason. What you do is trial and error, experimentation, guesswork."
Recent and Upcoming Activities
- I will attend the 2014 SIAM
Annual Meeting and participate with a talk at the
Workshop on Numerical and Theoretical Approaches for
Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations.
- I will participate in ICERM's
2014: Program for Early Career Researchers.
- I attended the Joint Mathematics Meetings and gave a talk and co-organize the AMS Special Session on Recent Advances in Homogenization and Model Reduction Methods for Multiscale Phenomena. Baltimore, MD. January 2014.
