Malgorzata Peszynska

#### Professor

Malgo Peszynska's research interests are in applied mathematics and computational modeling of real life phenomena. Originally trained in pure mathematics, she came to applied mathematics projects through her interest in parallel and high performance computing and variational theory for finite element methods. Since her PhD she has worked on models of flow and transport using mathematical and numerical analysis as well as computer simulations to understand these phenomena better across the various time and spatial scales. She is involved in a variety of interdisciplinary projects with academic, national lab, and industry collaborators from hydrology, oceanography, statistics, environmental, petroleum, civil and coastal engineering, physics, and materials science. Her research projects were funded by NSF, DOE-NETL and by DOE; her current projects include the 2015-2020 NSF-DMS 1522734 "Phase transitions in porous media across multiple scales", and 2019-2022 NSF-DMS 1912938 on "Modeling with Constraints and Phase Transitions in Porous Media". She believes in "paying it forward" and is engaged in external and university service via editorial work and conference organization: she served as the President of Pacific Northwest SIAM Section, Chair (2011-12) and Program Officer (2009-10) of SIAM Activity Group on Geosciences and in other functions.
