The People

Our faculty are involved in ongoing research in mathematical modeling of biological systems, problems in discrete mathematics, problems in classical algebra and algebraic geometry, studies of differential and partial differential equations, classical functional analysis, scientific computing, least squares finite element problems and theory, design of experiments, model selection, multivariate analysis, Bayesian inference, and quality control.

The faculty of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Oakland University is comprised of scholars and educators with national and international reputations. External funding from the National Science Foundation supports ongoing research in hurricane storm surge, international conferences, and supported a program in research experiences for undergraduates (REU, 2008–2013).

Over the years, members of our faculty have been chosen as recipients of:

  • College of Arts and Sciences Faculty Engagement Award
  • Oakland University New Investigator Research Excellence Award
  • Oakland University Teaching Excellence Award
  • Oakland University Research Excellence Award
  • Mathematical Association of America (Michigan Section) Distinguished Teaching Award
  • Professor of the Year Award, Presidents Council, State Universities of Michigan

Industrial Advisory
Committee
  • Dr. Ian Bradbury, Peaker Services, Inc.
  • Dr. David Lamb, U.S. Army TACOM-TARDEC
  • Dr. Charles W. Wampler, II, GM

The faculty has been enhanced by the establishment of an Industrial Advisory Committee. The Committee consists of persons who have been trained in the mathematical sciences and who are leaders in their respective corporations. They serve the department collectively in the following ways:

  • Provide continuing contacts for exchanges of information.
  • Provide technical advice in the development of applied mathematics programs at the Bachelors, Masters, and Ph. D. levels.
  • Are available for occasional seminars at the University to keep us informed of developments in the field or are able to suggest other persons who might fill this role.
  • Are a source of problems and projects for the development of clinical components within our programs.
  • Are able to assist in identifying possible internship positions for selected students.

Our active relationship with this Committee was begun in 1978–79. All objectives on the above list have been achieved. Exchange visits and exchange of information have occurred. Assistance has been given in new program development, particularly in relation to the Masters programs in Industrial Applied Mathematics and Applied Statistics. The existence of these Masters programs is of great value to undergraduate students as well as graduate students. Many undergraduate majors come to the University with advanced standing. Others seek to accelerate their programs. Courses in the Masters programs are available to these students to increase the depth and quality of their own programs. The clinical component affords the opportunity to study real problems. Finally, information has been received on the availability of internships, and several students have been employed under this type of arrangement in the summer months. As time goes on, these industrial relationships will be expanded and strengthened to the benefit of both faculty and students.
