Representing Southern Miss in Stanford's backyard

James V. Lambers

Graduate Program Director
ACUE Distinguished Teaching Scholar


I am a professor in the School of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the University of Southern Mississippi.

Previously, I was an acting assistant professor in the Department of Energy Resources Engineering at Stanford University. Before that, I was a lecturer and researcher in the Mathematics Department at the University of California at Irvine.

I am a PhD graduate of the SCCM program at Stanford University.

For my thesis I worked on Krylov subspace methods for variable-coefficient initial-boundary value problems. My advisors were Joe Oliger and Gene Golub. You can download my dissertation here.

My current research is on spectral methods for time-dependent variable-coefficient PDE; simulation of gas injection processes for enhanced oil recovery, in collaboration with Margot Gerritsen; and denoising of images via nonlinear diffusion, in collaboration with Patrick Guidotti.

You can find my CV here.
