Charles Rogers Doering is professor of mathematics at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He is notable for his research that is generally focused on the analysis of stochastic dynamical systems arising in biology, chemistry and physics, to systems of nonlinear partial differential equations. Recently he has been focusing on fundamental questions in fluid dynamics as part of the $1M Clay Institute millennium challenge concerning the regularity of solutions to the equations of fluid dynamics. With J. D. Gibbon, he notably co-authored the book Applied Analysis of the Navier-Stokes Equations, published by Cambridge University Press.
He received his BS from Antioch College, 1977; his MS from the University of Cincinnati, 1978; and his PhD from The University of Texas at Austin under Cécile DeWitt-Morette, 1985, in the area of applying stochastic differential equations to statistical mechanics and field theory. His masters thesis was entitled: Generation of solutions to the Einstein equations. His PhD thesis was entitled, Functional stochastic differential equations: mathematical theory of nonlinear parabolic systems with applications in field theory and statistical mechanics.
In 1986-87, he was a Director's Postdoctoral Fellow 1986-87, Center for Nonlinear Studies, Los Alamos National Laboratory; in 1987-96, he rose to Professor of Physics, 1987–96, Clarkson University; in 1994-96, he was Deputy Director of Los Alamos' Center for Nonlinear Studies.
Doering has received a number of honours including the NSF Presidential Young Investigator, 1989–94; Fellow of the American Physical Society, 2000; and the Humboldt Research Award, 2003. Doering is an editor of Physics Letters A.
