Ilie Ugarcovici earned his PhD in Mathematics from The Pennsylvania State University in 2004. He then spent two years as a G.C. Evans Instructor at Rice University before joining the faculty at DePaul University in 2006. Ugarcovici’s research interests focus on dynamical systems, ergodic theory, and population dynamics.
