Graduate Education

Michael Presho

Ph.D. Applied Mathematics

Education:

Ph.D. Applied Mathematics, University of Wyoming, 2010
M.S. Mathematics, University of Wyoming, 2005
B.S. Mathematics, University of Wyoming, 2003

Research:

My primary research area as a Ph.D. student was flow through porous media. During my studies I was particularly interested in the effects that uncertain (random) parameters have on fluid flow. I developed efficient models to address the effects of random, multiscale permeability fields.

Michael's Research

Why UW?

The fluid flow community at UW's Dept. of Mathematics a very notable and knowledgeable group. Even though UW has fewer students than some larger universities around the U.S., the quality of research and education is nationally competitive.

Current Position:

Directly after my Ph.D. I started a post-doctoral position with Colorado State University. Very recently I have accepted a position with a company in Southern California. I will be writing commercial level codes to solve various computational fluid dynamics models.

Advice For Future Graduate Students:

Buy a warm coat. You'll need it! On a serious note, I always suggest maximizing any positive opportunity. Many people around the world do not have access to top level university education. A university education is something that shouldn't be taken for granted. Rather, it should be viewed as a privilege.
