Olena Burkovska (2019)

Olena Burkovska
Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Dr. Olena Burkovska is the Householder Fellow in the Computational and Applied Mathematics group. Prior to joining ORNL, Olena was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the group of Prof. Max Gunzburger at the Florida State University and a visiting researcher at the University of Colorado Boulder. In 2016 she received her Ph.D. in Numerical Mathematics from the Technical University of Munich under the advisement of Prof. Barbara Wohlmuth. Additional to her Master’s degree in Mathematics from the Dnipropetrovsk National University, which she obtained in 2009, she holds a joint Master’s degree from 2012 in Mathematical Modeling in Engineering from the universities of L’Aquila, Hamburg, and the Autonomous University of Barcelona. Olena’s research interests lie in the area of numerical analysis, model order reduction, nonlocal and fractional models, and variational inequalities.

 

 

Zachary Grant (2018)

Zachary Grant
Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Dr. Zachary Grant received his PhD in Computational Science and Engineering from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in May 2018. His research interests primarily lie in numerical analysis, high order methods for numerical PDEs, and developing novel temporal discretizations. In particular, his work focused on designing new types of strong stability preserving time stepping schemes for the solution of hyperbolic conservation laws.
