Dr. Graber joined the Baylor faculty in 2016. Prior to this he spent two years as a post-doc at ENSTA ParisTech studying optimal control theory, followed by a two-year post-doc in mean field games working with Alain Bensoussan at the University of Texas at Dallas. He and his wife celebrated the birth of their first child in 2016.

Academic Interests:

Dr. Graber's research is in nonlinear partial differential equations, with a particular focus on problems related to control theory and optimization. He studies a wide range of models, from acoustic wave equations with nonlinear damping to Hamilton-Jacobi equations arising in optimal control. His latest research is in mean field game theory.
