David Glickenstein is a Professor in the Mathematics Department at the University of Arizona and the Associate Head of their graduate program. He received his undergraduate degree from Cornell University in 1997 with a double major in Mathematics and Computer
Science and his PhD in Mathematics from the University of California at San Diego in 2003 under the direction of Bennett Chow. He spent one year at MIT as a C.L.E. Moore Instructor and has been at the University of Arizona since 2003, supervising four PhD students and many undergraduate researchers.
His research revolves around various forms of geometric flows, which are differential equations applied to geometric objects like curves, surfaces, and manifolds. Much of his work is related to discrete forms of curvature as related to circle packing, discretized partial differential equations, and applications.
