Richard Sincovec

Richard Sincovec joined the University of Nebraska - Lincoln (UNL) in August 2000 as Henson Professor and Chair of Computer Science and Engineering. Prior to joining UNL he held positions as Director of the Division of Computer Science at The University of Texas at San Antonio, Director of the Computer Science and Mathematics Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Director of the Research Institute for Advanced Computer Science (RIACS) located at the NASA Ames Research Center near Mountain View, California, administrative positions at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and Boeing Computer Services in Seattle, Professor of Computer Science at Kansas State University, and Research Mathematician at Exxon Production Research in Houston.

Dr. Sincovec's research interests are in scientific computing, parallel computing, numerical algorithms, software and the application of modern software engineering and computer science concepts to scientific computing. Throughout his career, he has applied computer science and mathematical concepts to the solution of scientific and engineering problems in petroleum engineering, coal and oil shale gasification, groundwater modeling, atmospheric simulation, semiconductor device modeling, and electrical network simulation, to name a few. His primary research contributions are in the development of algorithms nd general-purpose software for the solution of engineering and scientific problems described by coupled systems of nonlinear partial differential equations and in the solution of differential/algebraic systems.

Dr. Sincovec is the co-author of five books, coeditor of a two-volume conference proceeding, numerous papers, and a member of SIAM and ACM. He served as the Editor-in-Chief of the SIAM Review from 1994 through 1998.
