Bjorn Engquist received his Ph.D. in numerical analysis from Uppsala University in1975. He has been professor of mathematics at UCLA, and the Michael Henry Stater University Professor of Mathematics and Applied and Computational Mathematics at Princeton University. He was director of the Research Institute for Industrial Applications of Scientific Computing and of the Centre for Parallel Computers at the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm. At Princeton University, he was director of the Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics and the Princeton Institute for Computational Science.
Engquist is a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences and the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters. He was a Guggenheim Fellow, received the first Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics Prize in Scientific Computing and the Henrici Prize. Professor Engquist is also the receiver of the AMS-SIAM Birkhoff Prize and the next ICIAM Pioneer Prize.
Engquist came to The University of Texas at Austin in 2004, where he holds the Computational and Applied Mathematics Chair I, and is director of the ICES Center for Numerical Analysis. Engquist’s research focuses on development and analysis of numerical methods for differential equations.
His earlier work includes the development of absorbing boundary conditions, homogenization theory and nonlinear high-resolution schemes for fluid dynamics. He is presently working on computational multi-scale methods and fast algorithms for wave propagation with applications in seismology.
