Mahboub Baccouch is currently a full professor of applied and computational Mathematics at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO), USA. He received both B.S. (2004) and M.S. (2005) degrees in Engineering and Engineering Mathematics. In 2005, he received his second M.S. in Mathematics degree from Virginia Tech. He received his Ph.D. degree in Mathematics in May 2008 from Virginia Tech. He has been a tenure-track assistant professor in the department of Mathematics at UNO since Fall 2008. He was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in the Fall of 2014. In Spring 2017, he received the James Earl Diamond Professorship in Mathematics, which is awarded for distinguished faculty performance in teaching and research. In Fall 2017, he received the College of Arts and Sciences Excellence in Research Award. In 2019, he was promoted to full professor. His research area of interest lies in computational and applied mathematics. He is currently investigating topics related to numerical methods for solving PDEs using high order methods including finite element and discontinuous Galerkin methods. He is also studying numerical solutions of mathematical problems using high order methods with broader applications. Recently, he began investigating a new research area related to numerical methods for stochastic differential equations.
