The Institute of Applied Mathematics promotes interdisciplinary research in the mathematical sciences at UBC by bringing together students and faculty who do mathematical work within a variety of disciplines. The Institute’s faculty and student members come from many different departments and faculties across the university, including the physical, chemical, biological, and engineering sciences. Students affiliated with the IAM pursue interdisciplinary masters and doctoral studies in applied and computational mathematics.
About the IAM
Graduate studies at the IAM
To affiliate with the Institute, a student must first be admitted to an academic department and must state his/her intention to follow an IAM program. The IAM is not a degree-granting department, so cannot admit students directly. Students usually choose a department based on their interests and background, and on the availability of financial support. A potential supervisor does not necessarily have to be from the same department. Many IAM students are registered in the Mathematics Department, and we also have students registered in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Geography, Geophysics, Mechanical Engineering, Oceanography, Physics, and Zoology.

IAM faculty member Khanh Dao Duc has been named one of the Wall Scholars for 2021-22 at the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies. Congratulations, Khanh! Khanh’s work integrates mathematical and computational approaches to study the fundamental determinants of biological processes. His research has most recently focused on exploring the role played by ribosomes in […]Read More
We welcome Professor Rajeev Jaiman as a new IAM faculty affiliate. Rajeev is an associate professor and NSERC/Seaspan Industrial Research Chair in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at UBC. His research interests broadly include multiphysics simulations, fluid-structure interaction, high-performance computing, data-driven modeling and physics-based machine learning. Before coming to UBC, he was an assistant professor […]Read More
Giovanni is a professor in the Vancouver School of Economics at UBC. His research focuses on the measurement and impact of heterogeneity on individual behaviors and aggregate economic outcomes, with a focus on policy. Dr. Gallipoli has worked on a variety of topics, including numerical general equilibrium models of consumption and income inequality; the link […]Read More
