Radu Cascaval, Ph.D.
I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Colorado at Colorado Spring (UCCS) and also the Director of the MathOnline Program at UCCS.
My research interests lie at the interface of two major fields: the well established mathematical field of nonlinear wave propagation and the younger field of cardiovascular mathematics. Lately, I have employed various theoretical tools, originally developed in the study of nonlinear waves, to gain insight into the complex dynamics exhibited by the cardiovascular system. I have also been using numerical simulations to validate the hypotheses and to develop new methods of analysis.
