Denys Bondar, an associate research scholar in the Rabitz group, has been given the 2015 Air Force Young Investigator Research Program Award.
He is one of 56 scientists who submitted winning research proposals to the Air Force Office of Scientific Research. Approximately $20.6M will be granted to awardees to enhance the early career development of exceptional young investigators. The goal of the program is to promote creative basic research in science and engineering.
Bondar’s research aims to develop a new generation of mathematical approaches and numerical algorithms to model dynamics of complex systems. These approaches will not only reduce the time and effort required to obtain efficient reduced-dimensional models for complex physical dynamics, but obtain such models where previous approaches have failed.
