Biography
Andrew Christlieb received his Ph.D. from the University of WisconsinMadison in 2001. Upon completing his Ph.D., he took a postdoc in the Aerospace Department at the University of Michigan with Iain Boyd, working on the simulation of micro airfoils. He then transitioned to a postdoc in the Mathematics Department at the University of Michigan, where he worked with Robert Krasny on the development of meshfree methods for plasma simulations. Since 2004, he has worked very closely with the RDHE group at the Air Force research labs on the development of new methods for particle simulations of plasmas. In 2006, Christlieb joined the mathematics department at Michigan State University. In 2006, he was awarded a Summer Faculty Fellow from the Air Force to work with AFRL Edwards on modeling of electric propulsion. In 2007, he received the Air Force Young Investigator Award for his work on the development of novel methods for simulating plasmas. From 20082012, Christlieb was an IPA for the directed energy group at Kirtland Air Force Base. In 2010, he was promoted to associate professor and in 2014 he was promoted to professor. In 2015, he was named an MSU Foundation Professor.
Christlieb has an active research group, focusing on multiscale modeling, high order numerical methods and sublinear lossy compression algorithms. He is currently advising three postdocs and ten students. His former Ph.D. students have gone on to hold positions in national labs, industry and academia. He has been involved in the development of a host of high order Eulerian, Lagrangian and semiLagrangian conservative methods for the kinetic simulation of plasmas, as well as the development of high order finite difference constrained transport methods for the simulation of Magnetohydrodynamics targeted at AMR codes and new implicit Maxwell solvers targeting scale separation in plasmas. Christlieb's group is currently funded by AFOSR Computational Mathematics, AFOSR Physics and Electronics, AFRL RDHE, NSF Division of Mathematics and ORNL LDRD on scalable computing.
