Dr. Suleyman Ulusoy has been an Associate Professor in Mathematics in the Mathematics and Natural Sciences Department since the Spring of 2017, teaching undergraduate mathematics courses.  Before joining AURAK, he served as a teaching assistant at Georgia Institute of Technology and in postdoctoral research positions at the University of Oslo in Norway, where he worked with the partial differential equations research group and the University of Maryland. 

Dr. Suleyman earned both his Ph.D in Mathematics in 2007 and his Master of Science in Applied Mathematics in 2003 from Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.  He earned both of his Bachelor’s degrees in Mathematics and Mathematics Education from the Middle East Technical University in Ankara, Turkey in 2000.


Dr. Suleyman’s research interests concern nonlinear partial differential equations, nonlinear (visco) elasticity, hyperbolic conservation laws, quasilinear hyperbolic-parabolic systems, inverse problems, optimal mass transport theory, dissipative dynamical systems, kinetic theory, non-local equations, differential equations with measure data, applied analysis, applied mathematics and numerical analysis of PDEs. Dr. Ulusoy has more than 25 published papers in prestigious journals and he has given talks at international conferences around the world.  He is an avid researcher and is currently collaborating on projects with researchers in various parts of the world.
