Hamiltonian Partial Differential Equations
See poster for more details>>>

James Ellis Colliander (born June 22, 1967) is an American Canadian
mathematician. He is currently Professor of Mathematics, and Associate Chair of
the University of Toronto Department of Mathematics. He received his Ph.D. from
the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign in 1997 and was advised by Jean
Bourgain. Colliander was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California,
Berkeley and spent semesters at the University of Chicago and the Mathematical
Sciences Research Institute. Colliander's research mostly addresses dynamical
aspects of solutions of Hamiltonian partial differential equations, especially
non-linear Schroedinger equation.

Notable awards that he received are a Sloan Fellowship (2003), and the McLean
Award (2007).
