Our current research is centered around operator-theoretic approach to analysis of nonlinear dynamical systems, applications in microfluidics and (bio)-nanotechnology. The research topics can be grouped as follows:
In each of these topics, the research is characterized by pursuit of the key physical phenomena in a device or system followed by the abstraction of the mathematical problem (or problems) associated with it. We close the loop by applying the solution of the mathematical problem to explain the physical phenomena or design new concepts based on which devices can be built or improved.
3/31/2017- Igor Mezic elected SIAM fellow!
This week, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) announced the class of 2017 SIAM fellows. This fellowship "honors SIAM members who are recognized by their peers as distinguished for their contributions to the discipline". Igor Mezic was elected among ~30 other applied mathematicians for his sustained innovation at the dynamical systems theory/applications interface; notably for advances in the use of Koopman operator theory...Read more
