PACM Professors Transferred to Emeritus Status

PACM professors Phil Holmes, Erhan Cinlar and Christodoulos Floudas have transferred to emeritus status effective July 1, 2015. Holmes' research on dynamical systems and nonlinear mechanics is at the intersection of the fields of applied mathematics, mechanical engineering and neuroscience. Çinlar is one of the pioneers in the field of stochastic processes, an area of mathematics dealing with probability and with applications in a number of fields including engineering. Floudas studies global optimization, deriving the best solution to a mathematical problem across a variety of contexts, from chemical plants to the folding of proteins. We wish them both the best.
