Irene Kyza has been a Lecturer in Computational Mathematics at the University of Dundee since March, 2013.
She obtained a PhD in Applied & Computational Mathematics from the University of Crete in 2009. Subsequently, she became a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Maryland, College Park, USA (2009—2011) and the Foundation of Research and Technology — Hellas (FORTH) (2012—2013) and a visiting lecturer at the University of Cyprus (2011).
As a postdoctoral fellow at FORTH, she was the principal researcher of the project “BIONUM”, which was co-funded by the European Union and the Greek State. She continues to be BIONUM's principal researcher. The project is expected to be completed during 2015.
Her research activities include the error control of evolution Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) arising in several applications in biology, physics and engineering.
Her main strength is the combination of involved numerical techniques with advanced theory of nonlinear PDEs. Such techniques include the a posteriori error analysis and adaptivity for problems like semilinear parabolic equations with possible blow-up and Schrödinger-type equations. They also include the Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) formulations for advection-diffusion equations on time-dependent domains, and the design of appropriate numerical methods and error analysis for these types of problems.
