Assistant Professor of Mathematics
Joanna Bieri is an assistant professor of mathematics at the University of Redlands who is available for comment on applied mathematics topics, as well as environmental math and environmental modeling.
One of Bieri’s current research interests is micro-combustion and the effects of gas expansion. She is working to understand how flames behave when confined to narrow channels, a concept that could have important applications in industrial settings and space missions.
Bieri was a NASA Graduate Student Research Fellow from 2004 to 2009, and she has also worked with the Grand Canyon National Park in developing management procedures for the Colorado River.
Prior to teaching at Redlands, Bieri was a lecturer at McCormick School of Engineering at Northwestern University.
Bieri received both her master’s and doctoral degrees in engineering science and applied mathematics from Northwestern University. She completed her bachelor’s degree in math and physics at Northern Arizona University.
