About Dr. Heinz

Stefan Heinz joined the University of Wyoming faculty in 2004. He came to the University of Wyoming from the Technical University Munich, Germany.

His research interests are in mathematical modeling, multiscale processes, stochastic analysis, Monte Carlo simulations, computational fluid dynamics, turbulence, combustion, and multiphase flows. He has authored eighty publications and published two textbooks (Springer, 2003 and 2011). For more than ten years, he has taught a variety of courses: calculus, probability, ordinary, partial, and stochastic differential equations, applied mathematics, and deterministic and stochastic mathematical modeling. His exceptional teaching and research were recognized by the UW College of Arts and Sciences when he received the Extraordinary Merit in Teaching Award (2007), and the Extraordinary Merit in Research Award (2011). In 2008 he was honored as Adjunct Professor of Mechanical Engineering. He has held visiting professor appointments at ETH Zurich, Delft Technical University, and the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder.
