Ensela Mema, Ph.D, is an Assistant Professor of Mathematics in the School of Integrative Science and Technology. Her research interests lie in developing mathematical models that can be used to predict real world phenomena relevant to public health and industry. Her research projects include developing mathematical models that describe the behavior of nematic liquid crystals as used in industrial applications. Additionally, she is interested in developing models that describe the behavior of two-layer liquid films as well as developing mathematical models that address social and public health issues. From a mathematical point of view, she uses ordinary and partial differential equations as well as numerical and analytical approaches to gain insight into the behavior of these complex systems.
Mema received her Ph.D. in Mathematical Sciences from the New Jersey Institute of Technology in 2016. Prior to joining NJCSTM she was a visiting Assistant Professor at the U.S. Military Academy.
