Assistant Professor


Dr. Colin Grudzien received his Ph.D. in Mathematics in 2016  from UNC Chapel Hill with a focus on Applied Dynamical Systems. Prior to joining the faculty at UNR, Colin was a research assistant at Los Alamos National Laboratory, a postdoc at the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center in Norway, and a visiting researcher at CEREA, a Joint Laboratory of École des Ponts ParisTech/EDF R&D.  Colin's research interests include Bayesian inference and uncertainty quantification in physical systems, and applications in modeling climate and the electric grid.
Colin is also the faculty adviser for the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics Student Chapter at UNR. Information on the student chapter can be found in the following link (https://siam-unr.github.io/).
