Richard E. Ewing, dean of Texas A&M University’s College of Science, will receive an honorary doctorate from the University of Bergen, Norway, Aug. 20, as part of the university’s 50th anniversary celebration.
Bergen’s Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences nominated Ewing for this honor to recognize his central role in the field of applied mathematics/numerical simulation and his close links with researchers at the University of Bergen.
Dean of the College of Science since 1992, Ewing is professor of mathematics and engineering and holder of the Texas Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) Distinguished Research Chair. He also serves as director of the Institute for Scientific Computation and the newly formed Academy for Advanced Telecommunications and Learning Technologies.
Holder of B.A., M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in mathematics from the University of Texas at Austin, Ewing has conducted extensive research in numerical analysis, mathematical modeling, fluid flow in porous media with energy and environmental applications, and large-scale scientific computation.
Before coming to Texas A&M, Ewing was J.E. Warren Distinguished Professor of Energy and Environment and professor of mathematics, petroleum engineering and chemical engineering at the University of Wyoming. He also directed that university’s Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute, Institute for Scientific Computation and the Wyoming Center for Energy Research.
