ICERM Postdocs


Postdoctoral Fellows - Fall 2016
Photo Hannah Alpert earned her Ph.D. in Mathematics from MIT in spring 2016. She is currently working in geometry. As an Institute Postdoctoral Fellow, Dr. Alpert began her in-residence work at ICERM during the fall 2016 ICERM program. She is continuing her ICERM-related research with her mentor at The Ohio State University through May 2017, where she will remain after her ICERM fellowship ends.
Photo Sergey Dyachenko completed his Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of New Mexico under the supervision of Professors Pavel M. Lushnikov and Alexander O. Korotkevich. Dr. Dyachenko’s research interests are water waves, nonlinear waves in optical media, the Keller-Segel model, Bose-Einstein condensation, and numerical simulations. Dr. Dyachenko will be at ICERM from September 2016 to May 2017 as an institute postdoctoral fellow.
Photo Seok Hyun Hong earned his Ph.D. in Mathematics from Pohang University of Science and Technology in spring 2016. He is currently working in partial differential equations and fluid mechanics. Dr. Hong will be at ICERM from January 2017 through May 2017 as a semester Postdoctoral fellow. He will return to a postdoctoral position at Brown University in 2017.
Photo Cecilia Mondaini obtained her Ph.D. in Mathematics at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro under the supervision of Professor Ricardo Rosa. Her research interests are the analysis of data assimilation algorithms, long-time behavior of solutions of the 3D Navier-Stokes equations, and statistical solutions of evolution equations. Dr. Mondaini will be at ICERM from January 2017 to May 2017 as a semester postdoctoral fellow.
Photo Olga Trichtchenko completed her Ph.D in Applied Mathematics at the University of Washington under the supervision of Bernard Deconinck. Her research interests are in nonlinear waves with an application to water waves. Dr. Trichtchenko will be at ICERM from January 2017 to May 2017 as a semester postdoctoral fellow.
Photo Xuecheng Wang completed his Ph.D. in Mathematics at Princeton University under the supervision of Professor Alexandru Ionescu. His research interests are harmonic analysis, fluid dynamics, and nonlinear dispersive PDEs. Dr. Wang will be at ICERM from January 2017 to May 2017 as a semester postdoctoral fellow.
Photo Xiaoqian Xu completed his Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison under the supervision of Professor Alexander Kiselev and Professor Andrej Zlatos. His research interests include partial differential equations, fluid dynamics, active scalar and mixing. Dr. Xu will be at ICERM from January to May 2017 as a semester postdoctoral fellow. He will return to Carnegie Mellon University in the summer of 2017.
