Dana Mendelson studies the long-time behavior of solutions to dispersive partial differential equations via a combination of probabilistic and deterministic techniques. She focuses on questions of existence and uniqueness of solutions, and questions related to understanding these equations as infinite-dimensional Hamiltonian systems.
Her research has been published in Advances in Mathematics, Transactions of the American Mathematical Society, and Journal of Functional Analysis.
Mendelson earned a PhD in mathematics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a BS in mathematics from McGill University. She also was a Viterbi Fellow at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, a postdoctoral member of the Institute for Advanced Study, and, most recently, an L. E. Dickson Instructor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Chicago.
