Daniel Oliveira da Silva

School of Science and Technology, Mathematics
Assistant Professor

Daniel is an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at Nazarbayev University.  He obtained his B.S. in physics at SUNY Stony Brook in 2002, and an M.S. in Applied Mathematics from Hofstra University in 2007.  He completed his PhD in 2012 at the University of Rochester.

After finishing his PhD, he spent three years as a postdoctoral fellow at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway, where he was part of the project Nonlinear PDEs in Spaces of Analytic Functions.  His research is primarily in the study of partial differential equations using tools from harmonic analysis.  He has studied equations from a wide variety of subjects, including quantum field theory, fluid mechanics, finance, and mechanical engineering.
