Math professor takes interdisciplinary approach to climate and energy

Professor Malgorzata Peszynska's current NSF-funded research takes an interdisciplinary approach to modeling methane hydrates, biofilms, coalbed methane, carbon sequestration and solar cells. These applications are important for global climate and energy studies. Her research team has created interdisciplinary training for graduate and undergraduate students and developed new courses and seminars devoted to modeling, analysis, and simulation of processes relevant to global energy and climate issues across multiple spatial and time scales.
