Dr. Nicholas Boros

Assistant Professor of Mathematics

Burke Administration 003F, (815) 939-5396

B.A. in Mathematics and Physics, 2003, University of Michigan-Flint

Ph.D. in Mathematics, 2012, Michigan State University

Dr. Boros joined Olivet’s faculty in 2012 after teaching at Michigan State University for seven years. He teaches calculus, differential equations, numerical analysis, real analysis and Senior Seminar.

His research interests lie in sharply estimating Fourier multiplier operators using techniques in harmonic analysis. He uses methods and techniques not just from harmonic analysis, but also from partial differential equations, variational calculus, optimal control theory and probability. 

With Alexander Volberg as his advisor, Dr. Boros completed his dissertation on “Computing the LP–operator norm of a quadratic perturbation of Burkholder's martingale transform, via the Bellman function technique, and using the martingale estimates to obtain the exact LP–operator norm of certain combinations of squares of Riesz transforms.”

His research has been published in Advances in Mathematics Journal and Indiana University Mathematics Journal. He has presented his work on harmonic analysis for the American Mathematics Society and Mathematical Association of America annual meetings, INRIA Sophia Antipolis Méditerranée (France), Instituto Matemáticas Universidad Sevilla (Spain) and Fields Institute (Canada).

While at Michigan State, Dr. Boros received the Senior Graduate Teaching Award. His teaching assignments included serving as the Charles Drew Science Scholars mathematics instructor, the Math Enrichment for Student Athletes instructor and the Engineering and Science Summer Academy “Bridge Program” mathematics instructor.

He is a member of the Mathematical Association of America and American Mathematical Society. For the 2012-2013 academic year, he is a Project NExT fellow.

Tending toward the eclectic, he enjoys traveling and eating ethnic foods from other countries. When he’s off campus, you might find him watching one of his favorite international or independent films.

Dr. Boros and his wife, Lindsey, are the parents of Elizabeth and Kate, and family time is one of his top priorities.  You can visit his webpage at ..  Youa
