Richard Sincovec

Henson Professor and Chair

Computer Science and Engineering

University of Nebraska - Lincoln

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.
