Daniel R Reynolds


I am a Professor in, and chair of, the Department of Mathematics at Southern Methodist University.  Prior to joining SMU in 2008, I held postdoctoral research positions in the Department of Mathematics and the Center for Astrophysics and Space Sciences at the University of California, San Diego (2005-2008), and in the Center for Applied Scientific Computing at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (2003-2005).  I received a PhD in Computational and Applied Mathematics from Rice University in 2003, and a BA in Mathematics from Southwestern University in 1998.
