Personal profile

Vera Mikyoung Hur is a Professor of Mathematics and Associate Chair for Faculty. She is the Philippe Tondeur Scholar in Mathematics and a Brad and Karen Smith Professorial Scholar of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. She is a faculty affiliate of the Computational Science and Engineering program. She was a Visiting Professor at Brown University in 2016-2017. 

Research Interests

Differential Equations and Applied Mathematics

Professional Information

Professor Hur puts together rigorous analysis, numerical computation, and modeling to address fundamental issues in the mathematical aspects of water waves: particularly, global regularity versus finite time singularities, and; the existence of traveling waves and their characterization; the stability and instability of traveling waves. Her projects emphasize large scale dynamics and genuinely nonlinear behaviors, such as breaking and peaking.
