The COMP-M team is made of faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students from the Department of Computational and Applied Mathematics:

Beatrice Riviere

Noah G. Harding chair and professor
Dr. Riviere received her Ph.D. in 2000 from the University of Texas at Austin. She is the author of more than one hundred scientific publications in numerical analysis and scientific computing.  Her book on the theory and implementation of discontinuous Galerkin methods is highly cited. Dr. Riviere has worked extensively of the derivation of numerical methods applied to problems in porous media and in computational fluid dynamics. Her current research deals with the development of high-order methods in time and in space for multiphase multicomponent flows (in rigid and deformable media); the modeling of pore scale flows for immiscible and miscible components; the numerical model of transport of oxygen and carbon dioxide in a network of blood vessels; the theoretical analysis of neural networks for image segmentation of biological tissues and the design of iterative solvers. Dr. Riviere is a member of the editorial board of SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis, SIAM Journal on Scientific Computing, Advances in Water Resources, Results in Applied Mathematics. She currently serves at the chair of the SIAM activity group in Geosciences for 2019 and 2020.
