(Chuck Gartland)

My home department is the Department
of Mathematical Sciences in the College
of Arts and Sciences at Kent State
University.
The Department offers degree programs at the bachelor, masters, and
doctoral
levels in *mathematics* and *applied mathematics*. I am
actively
involved in the Applied
Mathematics
Program.

My training is in numerical analysis. My current interests are in
the
areas of computational applied mathematics, in general, and
computational
problems in liquid crystals, in particular. My interest in liquid
crystals
stems from the fact that there exists at Kent a major research
institute
devoted to their study: the *Liquid Crystal Institute* (LCI).

I was a member of the program faculty of the *Chemical Physics
Interdisciplinary
Program* (CPIP) for 18 years (1996-2013).
I also served for 4 years (2000-2004) as Treasurer of the *International
Liquid
Crystal
Society* (ILCS), a professional
organization with nearly 1,000 members, from more that 40 countries.

More information about administration, awards, grants, publications,
and students is available in my short vita.
