Dr. Bahuaud's interests lie in differential geometry. Broadly this is the use of calculus (especially differential equations) in studying the shape of surfaces and their higher-dimensional cousins. Recently he has been interested in geometric flows that evolve shape at a rate determined by curvature.
Along with colleague Dr. Oliveras, Dr. Bahuaud organizes the Eigenseminar, a weekly undergraduate research seminar where we explore eigenvalue problems in differential equations.
Dr. Bahuaud received his B.Sc. (Honours) in Pure Mathematics from the University of Calgary in 1999, and his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Washington in 2007.
Before joining the math department at Seattle U, he spent time as a postdoctoral researcher and teacher at Universite de Montpellier II, the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, St. Mary's College of California and Stanford University.
