About Dr. Pereira

Professor Pereira is a School of Energy Resources Distinguished Professor of Mathematics (since 2008) and the Associate Director of the Center for Fundamentals of Subsurface Flow (since 2010) at the University of Wyoming. His expertise includes modeling and simulation of multiphase flows in heterogeneous oil reservoirs and aquifers, uncertainty quantification, numerical methods for PDEs and high performance computing. He has undergraduate and MSc degrees in physics (from UFMG, Brazil),  a MSc in mathematics (from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, NYU), and a PhD degree in applied mathematics, obtained at the University at Stony Brook. Professor Pereira enjoys working with engineers in applying state-of-the-art mathematical/statistical/computational methods to solve real-life, challenging problems related to fluid flows in the subsurface.
