New Faculty: Guillaume Bal and Chris Wiggins

The APAM Department proudly welcomes two new applied mathematics faculty members: Prof. Guillaume Bal and Prof. Chris Wiggins.
Guillaume Bal

Prof. Bal's research interests include propagation of waves in random media and derivation of transport equations and diffusion approximations for high frequency waves.

He received his Ph.D. from the University of Paris and was a lecturer at the University of Chicago.


Chris Wiggins

Prof. Wiggins's research interests in applied mathematics include numerical analysis, fluid mechanics, and partial differential equations and, in physics, such areas as solitons, biomaterials, cellular biophysics, liquid crystals, polymers, and elasticity.

He received his B.A. from Columbia and Ph.D. from Princeton and was an assistant professor at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences,
