Professor of Mathematics
Professor and Chair Department of Mathematics
Ph. D., University of Minnesota, July 1996
Dr. Mitrea joined the Mathematics Department at Baylor University in August of 2019. Prior to Baylor she has been a faculty at the University of Missouri in Columbia for 23 years, where she held the Houchins Distinguished Professorship during September 2016 - July 2019. Teaching awards received include a University of Missouri Provost's Outstanding Junior Faculty Award and a University of Missouri Kemper Fellowship for Teaching Excellence Award. She has also been involved in outreach activities, including work with mathematics teachers, hosting math competitions for students, as well as training middle school and high school students for various math competitions. For her work with middle school students Professor Mitrea was recognized by the 43rd President of the United States, George W. Bush, in the Oval Office at the White House, on December 12, 2003. To date, Dr. Mitrea has advised nine Masters and Ph. D. students. Currently, she is an editor for Complex Variables and Elliptic Equations.
Professor Mitrea’s research is at the interface between Harmonic Analysis, Partial Differential Equations, Differential Geometry, and Geometric Measure Theory. Topics of focus in her research include: singular integral operators of Calderon-Zygmund type and their use as tools in the treatment of boundary value problems, the interplay between analysis and geometry, both in the Euclidean ambient, as well as in the setting of Riemannian manifolds, acoustic and electromagnetic scattering, functional analysis in nonlocally convex spaces, metrization theorems in topology, and algebraic structures in analysis (groupoids, Clifford algebras).
