Jeffery J. Leader

Jeffery J. Leader is a Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. He is the advisor for the the major in Computational Science.

His research interests are in numerical analysis/computational science. He has worked summers at ARL (Adelphi) on synthetic aperture radar imagery for Automatic Target Recognition (ATR), at NSWC-Dahlgren on an inverse PDE problem involving radar performance, and at the AFRL Sensors Directorate on an ATR/Sensor Data Fusion problem. He was on leave during the 2005-2006 academic year at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM and during the 2012-2013 academic year as the Distinguished Visiting Professor of Mathematical Sciences at the U.S. Air Force Academy. He has a textbook on numerical analysis through Addison-Wesley Longman (Pearson).

He studied at Syracuse University (BS Mathematics, BSEE Electrical Engineering) and Brown Universty (Sc.M., Ph.D. from the Division of Applied Mathematics), where he wrote his dissertation on a chaotic dynamical system with applications to numerical analysis under Philip J. Davis. He has also taught at Harvey Mudd College (Claremont, CA), the Naval Postgraduate School (Monterey, CA), the United States Military Academy (West Point, NY) and Santa Clara University (Santa Clara, CA). He lives near Terre Haute, IN, and is an instructor in the Filipino martial art of Presas Arnis.
