## A Brief Bio

Silvia Jimenez Bolanos is currently
a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department
of
Mathematics at Colgate
University. She will start as an Assistant
Professor at Colgate starting July 1st, 2015. 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 ^{th} 2010,
with Professor Robert Lipton as her PhD adviser.

She received her Bachelor's degree in
Mathematics from Universidad de Costa Rica in 2002
and her Master's degree in Mathematics from

Her current research centers on *Homogenization of Nonlinear Elliptic Partial
Differential Equations*. She
is interested in researching the effect of micro-structure
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."
