About

Dr. Jensen received his B.S. from the Illinois Institute of Technology in 1971 and his Ph.D. from Northwestern University in 1975. After receiving his Ph.D. he accepted the position of Hedrick Assistant Professor for two years at the University of California in Los Angeles.  In 1977–78 he was a Visiting Research Assistant Professor at the Mathematics Research Center at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. From 1977–80 he was an Assistant Professor at the University of Kentucky and an Associate Professor there from 1980–87. In 1985 he came to Loyola University Chicago as a Visiting Professor and became a permanent faculty member at Loyola University Chicago in 1986. From 2007–12 he served as the Chair of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.

Dr. Jensen's primary research interest is in nonlinear partial differential equations with applications to physics, engineering, and finance. Since 1976 he has been awarded 13 multi-year research grants by the National Science Foundation; and in 1982 he was awarded one of the prestigious Sloan Research Fellowships in mathematics. He was one of 10 speakers invited to give a 45 minute lecture in Partial Differential Equations at the 1998 International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM98) in Berlin, Germany. He has been appointed a Visiting Member of the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley three times. And in 2013 he was named a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society. Dr. Jensen is a regular visitor at the University of California in Berkeley. His work has drawn international attention, and he has given invited talks at conferences and universities around the world, including the Australian National University (Australia), Brown University, Carnegie Mellon University, College de France (France), the Georgia Institute of Technology, Indiana University, the Institute for Advanced Studies at Princeton, Northwestern University, Pierre and Marie Curie University (France), Purdue University, Rice University, Texas A & M University, Tokyo Metropolitan University (Japan), the University of California in Irvine, the University of California in Los Angeles, the University of California in Santa Barbara, the University of Chicago, the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, the University of Illinois in Chicago, the University of Kentucky, the University of Maryland, the University of Minnesota, the University of Oxford (England), the University of Padua (Italy), the University of Paris-Dauphine (France), the University of Pavia (Italy), the University of Pittsburgh, the University of Utah, and the University of Wisconsin in Madison.
