Denis Blackmore has been a Professor of Mathematical Sciences at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) since 1982 and has been a visiting member of the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences on several occasions. Previously he taught at the Polytechnic University of New York. While conducting his research in dynamical systems, computational topology, and differential topology, he has also devoted considerable time to engaging in collaborative research with scholars in various science and engineering disciplines. His research in granular flow dynamics, fluid dynamics, mathematical physics, computer-aided geometric design, biomathematics, and metrology reflects his interests in applications of mathematics.

Professor Blackmore received his Ph.D. in Mathematics in 1971 from the Polytechnic University of New York. He also earned an M.S. in Mathematics and a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from the same institution. His research as a graduate student was in the areas of boundary layer theory and the qualitative theory of differential equations.

Dr. Blackmore has co-written two books, co-edited two books, is co-writing a Springer monograph on integrable (infinite-dimensional) dynamical systems and has published scores of scientific papers in leading journals, books and conference proceedings. He has received grants from DARPA, NSF, ONR and the New Jersey Commission on Science and Technology. In addition to his research, for which he received the Harlan Perlis Research Award from NJIT in 1993, he is also devoted to instruction in mathematics and has won awards for his teaching.
