Brian Krummel, PhD, Visiting Assistant Researcher at the Department of Mathematics at University of California, Berkeley, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in mathematics and higher education.
Delving into the field of mathematics from a young age, Dr. Krummel stumbled upon his calling by chance, noting that his former interest in magic was right below the mathematics section at the library. Since that time, his interest in mathematics developed organically and he procured a particular fondness for geometry. He subsequently received a Bachelor of Science in mathematics, summa cum laude, from the University of Maryland in 2006, followed by a Doctor of Philosophy in mathematics from Stanford University in 2011.
Since 2017, Dr. Krummel has served as a visiting assistant researcher in the department of mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley, specializing in vectorial and geometric problems in the realm of calculus. Prior to this engagement, he served as a postdoctoral research fellow in the department of mathematics at the University of Texas at Austin from 2015 to 2016, preceded by a postdoctoral research fellowship in the department of pure mathematics and statistics at the University of Cambridge from 2011 to 2015. During his undergraduate and graduate studies, he held the role of researcher at such institutions as Stanford University, Lafayette College, and Tulane University.
Dr. Krummel taught briefly at Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati in 2016, covering multivalued harmonic functions. From 2011 to 2015, he taught such courses at the University of Cambridge as Elliptic Partial Differential Equations and Maximum Principle for Minimal Surfaces. In addition, he taught undergraduate courses at Stanford University, including MTH 53 Ordinary Differential Equations and MTH 51H Honors Multivariable Calculus. Furthermore, he served as a lecturer at the University of Maryland from 2003 to 2006, teaching such courses as MTH 151 Calculus and MTH 151H Honors Calculus, and he also tutored at the Learning Resource Center in calculus, linear algebra, and physics.
A prolific author, Dr. Krummel has authored and coauthored several articles in relation to his areas of expertise, including “Fine properties of branch point singularities: multivalued Dirichlet energy minimizing functions,” “Fine properties of branch point singularities: two-valued minimal graphs,” “Higher codimension relative isoperimetric inequality outside a convex set,” and “Existence and regularity of multivalued solutions to elliptic equations and systems.”
In recognition of his exceptional accomplishments, Dr. Krummel was presented with an Undergraduate Research Award at the University of Maryland in the amount of $16,000 in 2006. In addition, he was a member of the Meyerhoff Scholarship Program, which provided full tuition for his predoctoral studies from 2002 to 2006. Looking toward the future, Dr. Krummel intends to move onto a full professorship and continue conducting research into his areas of interest.
