Associate Professor Tim Chartier is a recipient of a national teaching award from the Mathematical Association of America. Published by Princeton University Press, Tim coauthored Numerical Methods: Design, Analysis, and Computer Implementation of Algorithms with Anne Greenbaum. As a researcher, Tim has worked with both Lawrence Livermore and Los Alamos National Laboratories on the development and analysis of computational methods targeted to increase efficiency and robustness of numerical simulation on the lab's supercomputers, which are among the fastest in the world. Tim's research with and beyond the labs was recognized with an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship.
Tim serves on the Editorial Board for Math Horizons, a mathematics magazine of the Mathematical Association of America. He also served on the Advisory Board of YourMusicOn (YMO), a mobile music startup company and chairs the Advisory Council for the Museum of Mathematics, which will be the first museum of mathematics in the United States and opens in December 2012. Tim has been a resource for a variety of media inquiries which includes fielding mathematical questions for the Sports Science program on ESPN. He also writes for the Science blog of the Huffington Post.
Professor Chartier received a B.S. degree in applied mathematics and a M.S. degree in computational mathematics from Western Michigan University, a Ph.D. in applied mathematics from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and held a VIGRE postdoctoral position at the University of Washington, before arriving at Davidson in 2003.
