The Committee is excited to welcome the following new faculty members:
Jeremy Hoskins, assistant professor. As an applied mathematician, he has a broad range of research interests. His recent contributions produced noted fast algorithms to solve partial differential equations (PDE), primarily of Helmholtz type, with singular solutions due to complex geometries and non-smooth boundaries. Jeremy comes to us from Yale University where he was a Gibbs Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics. He obtained his Mathematics Ph.D. in 2017 at University of Michigan.
Brent Doiron, professor. He received a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Ottawa (2004), and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Center for Neural Science at New York University (2017). His research focuses on a combination of nonlinear dynamics and statistical mechanics, with an emphasis on the genesis and transfer of variability in neural circuits. He has developed core theoretical insights that have made contributions to both neural coding and network learning. Throughout his research career, he has collaborated with experimental colleagues who work in the electrosensory, olfactory, somatosensory, auditory, and visual systems.
