MAMS welcomes new tenure-track faculty

In exciting news, the Department of Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Statistics (MAMS) at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) has bolstered its academic ranks by welcoming four new tenure-track faculty members. Their addition amplifies the department’s focus on fostering a vibrant research environment and delivering exceptional education for both students and faculty.

Professor Anuj Abhishek obtained his Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the Department of Mathematics at Tufts University in 2018. Following his graduation, he assumed the role of a Visiting Assistant Professor at Drexel University and later a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at UNC Charlotte. His research primarily focuses on inverse problems, particularly within the realm of various imaging paradigms such as medical imaging, geophysical imaging, and non-destructive testing of materials. 

Professor Sakshi Arya completed her Ph.D. in Statistics at The University of Minnesota in 2020. Subsequent to her graduation, she undertook positions as a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Public Health Sciences at the University of Chicago, a Postdoctoral Associate at the School of Statistics at the University of Minnesota, and an Eberly Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Statistics at Penn State University. Her research interests encompass the Multi-armed bandit problem, sequential decision making, nonparametric estimation, statistical learning theory, and spatio-temporal analysis.

Professor Eva Belmont achieved her Ph.D. in Mathematics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2018. Following graduation, she held successive post-doctoral positions at Northwestern University and UC San Diego. Her research interests revolve around Homotopy theory, including classical, chromatic, and motivic aspects, as well as applications of homological algebra to homotopy theory.

Professor Abdul-Nasah Soale completed his Ph.D. in Statistics at Temple University in 2021 and subsequently joined the Department of Applied & Computational Mathematics & Statistics at the University of Notre Dame as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. His research pursuits encompass Sufficient dimension reduction, multivariate analysis, causal inference, and network analysis.

Welcome to CWRU, Dr. Abishek, Dr. Arya, Dr. Belmont, and Dr. Soale!
