Department Welcomes Seven New Faculty Members

Blane Hollingsworth

The Department of Mathematics welcomes seven new colleagues this fall. The new group includes one senior lecturer, one lecturer, and five postdoctoral fellows.

Senior Lecturer Blane Hollingsworth, received his Ph.D. in 2008 from Auburn University. His areas of interest are stochastic differential equations, probability/measure theory, dynamical systems, and recreational mathematics (game theory, logic).

Shusen Pu

Lecturer Shusen Pu, received his Ph.D. in 2020 from Case Western Reserve University. His areas of interest include mathematical biology, stochastic processes, inverse problems, mathematical modeling, mathematical statistics, generalized distributions, and data analysis.

Five new postdoctoral fellows also joined the department:

Leonardo Abbrescia received his Ph.D. from Michigan State University in 2020 and is a NSF postdoctoral fellow. His research interests are in partial differential equations, compressible fluid dynamics, shock formation, and geometric analysis.

Dylan Domel-White

Dylan Domel-White received his Ph.D. from the University of Houston in 2020. His research interests are in linear and multilinear algebra, matrix theory, stochastic processes, and Fourier analysis.

Kevin Grace

Kevin Grace received his Ph.D. from Louisiana State University in 2018. His research interests are in structural matroid theory, combinatorics, and algebraic geometry.

Alexander Margolis

Alexander Margolis received his Ph.D. from the University of Oxford in 2018. His research interests are in group theory and generalizations, general topology, and geometry.

Yi Wang

Yi Wang received her Ph.D. from Texas A&M University in 2018. Her research interests are in functional analysis, operator theory, complex variables, and analytic spaces.
