    Dr. Mary Fanett Wheeler has served on the faculty since 1995 and is presently director of the Center for Subsurface Modeling in the Texas Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics (TICAM). Her research interests include numerical solution of partial differential systems with application to the modeling of subsurface and surface flows and parallel computation. Her numerical work includes formulation, analysis and implementation of finite-difference/finite-element discretization schemes for nonlinear, coupled PDE’s as well as domain decomposition iterative solution methods. Her applications include reservoir engineering and contaminant transport in groundwater and bays and estuaries. Her current work has emphasized mixed finite-element and discontinuous Galerkin methods for modeling reactive multi-phase flow and transport in a heterogeneous porous media, with the goal of simulating these systems on parallel computing platforms. Dr. Wheeler has published more than 100 technical papers and edited seven books. She is currently an editor of six technical journals and managing editor of Computational Geosciences. In 1998 she was elected to the National Academy of Engineering.
