Dr. Eric Sullivan

Dr. Sullivan is an Assistant Professor of Mathematics.  He received his B.S. in Mathematics from Iowa State Univeristy (1998), M.S. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (2007), and his Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Colorado Denver (2013).

Dr. Sullivan's mathematical interests include modeling of fluids in porous media using hybrid mixture theory, continuum mechanics, partial differential equations, and numerical methods for partial differential equations. In his free time, he enjoys hiking, biking, rock and ice climbing, kayaking, and generally being outdoors.
