Leila Issa

Leila Issa is an assistant professor of Applied Mathematics. She joined LAU in October 2011 as an assistant professor of Mathematics.
Her research interests include data assimilation applied to ocean modeling and asymptotic methods applied to modeling microflows.
She obtained her doctorate in 2010 from the Computational and Applied Mathematics Department at Rice University, where her research focused on imaging sources in random acoustic waveguides.
