Tamar Schlick received her B.S. degree in Mathematics from Wayne State
University in 1982 and her M.S. (1985) and Ph.D. (1987) degrees in Applied
Mathematics from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York
University. Following a two-year NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship at NYU and
the Weizmann Institute, she joined the faculty of Chemistry and Mathematics
at NYU, where she is Professor. Since 1994 she has also been an Associate
Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and a member of the
Biochemistry Department, NYU Medical Center, and since 1995 a member of
the Computer Science Department, Courant Institute.
Areas of Technical Specialization
Mathematical Biophysics/Computational Chemistry:
for biomolecular simulations (energy minimization and molecular dynamics)
and applications to DNA supercoiling and protein dynamics. Numerical
Analysis and Scientific Computing: nonlinear unconstrained optimization,
truncated Newton methods, stiff differential equations, conjugate gradient
methods with application-tailored preconditioners, modified Cholesky factorizations,
sparse linear systems, and multiscale methods.
