Hristo Kojouharov

Professor

Email: hristo@uta.edu

Office: PKH 403

Research: My scientific research covers the fields of mathematical biology and numerical analysis, and is strongly motivated and oriented toward applications. I am primarily interested in the accurate mathematical modeling and theoretical analysis of biological phenomena, in particular the modeling of population dynamics, microbial biofilms, bone and muscle formation and growth, and the human immune system. I am also interested in the formulation, analysis and implementation of non-standard numerical methods for solving nonlinear differential equations.

Professor

Email: pkroll@uta.edu

Office: CPB 353

Research: My group works on various challenges in materials chemistry using computational methods and tools. A major field are amorphous ceramics and glasses, elucidating structure formation and properties of disordered materials. We apply data harvesting and optimization strategies (some call this "machine learning") to compute observable parameters (e.g. NMR shielding) or to develop new reactive force-fields.
