A Brief Bio

Silvia Jimenez is currently a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Worcester Polytechnic Institute.  She obtained her Ph.D. in Mathematics at Louisiana State University on August 6th 2010, with Professor Robert Lipton as her PhD adviser.  

She received her Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from Universidad de Costa Rica in 2002 and her Master's degree in Mathematics from Louisiana State University in 2006.

Her current research centers on Homogenization of Nonlinear Elliptic Partial Differential Equations.  She is interested in researching the effect of microstructure on the solution of Partial Differential Equations.   

"Mathematics is not a deductive science, that's a cliche.  When you try to prove a theorem, you don't just list the hypotheses, and then start to reason. What you do is trial and error, experimentation, guesswork."
