Applied Mathematics

Prospective Graduate Students

The Applied Mathematics Group offers many opportunities for exciting graduate research. The interdisciplinary nature of Applied Mathematics presents enormous opportunities and challenges for the 21st century Mathematician. At UCSB there are many exciting research opportunities to conduct interdisciplinary research at the interface of Mathematics and fields from the Sciences and Engineering. Faculty of the Applied Mathematics Group are active in many areas including: Complex Fluids, Soft-Condensed Matter, Multiscale Analysis, Nanosciences, Stochastic Analysis, Material Science, Biomathematics, and Scientific Computing.

Graduate Students in the Applied Mathematics Group have unique opportunities to conduct interdisciplinary research in a vibrant intellectual environment, often engaging in significant collaborations with faculty and students from other departments on campus. UCSB also has several internationally recognized centers, which hold programs and activities in which many of the applied math faculty and students participate. These centers include the Materials Research Lab (MRL), the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP), and the California Nanosystems Institute (CNSI). The Applied Mathematics Group also maintains close collaborations with several affiliated organizations. Faculty are core members of the Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) Program, which allows for students to obtain a graduate emphasis in Mathematics and CSE. The Applied Mathematics Group also has a partnership with the Complex Fluids Design Consortium.

The Applied Mathematics Group welcomes you to apply to our program. General information about the Mathematics Program at UCSB and important deadlines can be found on the Department of Mathematics Webpage.
