Mathematician Ian Tice Receives NSF CAREER Award
Ian Tice, an assistant professor of Mathematical Sciences, received an NSF CAREER Award. The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research.
Professor Tice works in the areas of partial differential equations and fluid mechanics. The broad goal of his research is to develop the mathematical theory of PDEs in order to study physical phenomena. The phenomena treated by his research include moving interfaces between two fluids, the dynamics of collapsing stars, and the motion of vortices in the Ginzburg-Landau model of superconductivity. Professor Tice is affiliated with Carnegie Mellon's Center for Nonlinear Analysis.
