Magdalena Stolarska has been a faculty member of the math department since 2006 and has served as the associate director of the CAM since 2011.  She received her Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics in 2002 from Northwestern University under the supervision of Professor David Chopp.  She continued on to the University of Minnesota as a postdoctoral associate working with Professor Hans Othmer.

Dr. Stolarska’s dissertation topic was modeling fracture using the level set method.  As a postdoctoral research, she became interested in mathematical biology.  She now works on problems in which mathematical models describing mechanical interactions are applied to biological systems that involve growth and movement.  With students at the University of St. Thomas, Dr. Stolarska has worked on projects that include modeling the effects of mechanical stresses on the growth of cancerous tumors, modeling the interaction of cells and surfaces on which they crawl, and modeling the development of intracranial pressures in infants with abnormal skull growth
