The department would like to welcome Professor François Meyer to the Applied Mathematics faculty. Meyer has an impressive background, receiving his M.S. and Ph.D. in France. Dr. Meyer has previously worked as an Assistant Professor at Yale, a Visiting Professor at the Institute Henri Poincaré, a Senior Fellow at the Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics (UCLA) , a Visiting Research Scholar at Princeton University, a Visiting Scholar at Brown University, and a Visiting Professor (fellowship Jean d’Alembert) at INRIA-Saclay and NeuroSpin.
Dr. Meyer’s work is “sitting at the intersection of applied probability, graph theory, and some flavor of fast computation.” Professor Meyer states that the most compelling part of his work, is helping students and fostering them to succeed in the growing sophistication of applied mathematics needed to analyze massive and complex datasets.
Professor Meyer is currently teaching Discrete Mathematics. Meyer is enthusiastic about joining the department, saying that “it has been a long time since I’ve seen this passion at the undergrad level.” He’s excited to be working in the department because of the great faculty, stating: “I’ve been interacting with the faculty for many, many years; several APPM faculty members have had very profound impacts on my career.”
