Flores, Ph.D., is teaching a course on computational mathematics which consists of teaching numerical methods to simulate mathematical models using software such as Maple, Matlab and XppAut. Following the four-week course, Flores will instruct a two-week workshop oriented toward faculties on more advanced material in computational mathematics. Additionally, Flores will serve as a panelist for potential Fulbright Scholarship recipients looking to study in the U.S.

"I was invited by the Fulbright executive director in Santiago to serve as a panelist in the selection of Chilean students who are applying for Fulbright scholarships to pursue Ph.D. studies in the United States," explained Flores, who returns to USD on Sept. 1.

During his time in Chile, Flores will also oversee research on mathematical ecology with collaborators from the University of Chile’s Department of Ecology. Flores, who received his Ph.D. at the University of Iowa, has been working on mathematical models derived from ecological problems, specifically predator-prey types of models. More information about Flores and his research is available at www.usd.edu/~jflores/. A photo of Flores is also available for download at www.usd.edu/urelations/images/Flores_Jose.jpg.

The Fulbright Program, America’s flagship international educational exchange program, is sponsored by the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Since its inception, the Fulbright Program has exchanged approximately 273,500 people – 102,900 Americans who have studied, taught or researched abroad and 170,600 students, scholars and teachers from other countries who have engaged in similar activities in the United States. The Program operates in more than 150 countries worldwide.
