About Dr. Douglas

Professor Douglas is a School of Energy Resources Distinguished Professor of Mathematics (since 2008) and Director of the Institute for Scientific Computing (since 2009) at the University of Wyoming. He is also Associate Director (since 2012) of the Strategic Research Initiative on Numerical Porous Media (NumPor) at the King Abdullah University of Science & Technology (KAUST) and a Visiting Professor there during summers. He leads the NumPor project at the University of Wyoming. His expertise includes eXtreme Technical Computing on parallel supercomputers and GP-GPUs, dynamic interactions between physical models, computation, and networks of sensors to create long running, big data applications that are self correcting and do not need to be restarted when new data is generated. He is an expert on multigrid methods and other numerical methods for solving partial differential equations. Since coming to the University of Wyoming he has been awarded a Zi-Qiang Professorship of Computer Science Award (2009) at Shanghai University. Professor Douglas came to the University of Wyoming from the University of Kentucky and Yale University.
