About Mahboub Baccouch

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO). I received both B.S. (2004) and M.S. (2005) degrees in Engineering and Engineering Mathematics. In 2005, I received my second M.S. in Mathematics degree from Virginia Tech. I received my Ph.D. degree in mathematics in May 2008 from Virginia Tech. I have been a tenure-track assistant professor in the department of mathematics at UNO since fall 2008. I was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in the Fall of 2014. In Spring 2017, I received the James Earl Diamond Professorship in Mathematics, which is awarded for distinguished faculty performance in teaching and research. In fall 2017, I received the College of Arts and Sciences Excellence in Research Award.

My research area of interest is in computational and applied mathematics. I am currently investigating topics related to numerical methods for solving PDEs using high order methods including finite element and discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods. I am also studying numerical solutions of mathematical problems using high order methods with broader applications. Recently, I began investigating a new research area related to numerical methods for stochastic differential equations (SDEs). I am currently designing and analyzing new DG and LDG methods for SDEs. I am also investigating DG methods for solving a mathematical model for tumor growth used in modeling a real biological system.

I have more than 12 years of teaching experience. I received the Kerrigan Award for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (Annual award to recognize excellence in teaching) in April 2014. Since I have been at UNO, I have taught seven different graduate courses (related to numerical PDEs) and seven different undergraduate courses (calculus I, II, III, applied linear algebra, differential equations, numerical methods, and introduction to PDEs). I have also developed several online and hybrid courses.
