Jan S. Hesthaven is a Danish mathematician ^{[1]}, currently Dean of the School of Basic Sciences^{[2]} with the responsibility for the Institutes of Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry ^{[3]} at EPFL  École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne. He is Professor of Mathematics and holds the Chair of Computational Mathematics and Simulation Science (MCSS)^{[2]}. He is particularly known for contributions to the development, analysis and application of highorder accurate computational methods for timedependent partial differential equations. He has also contributed substantially to the development of reduced order models and the application of neural networks and machine learning techniques to problems in science and engineering.
Career
Prof. Hesthaven^{[1]} obtained a Master of Science degree in computational physics from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in 1991. In 1995 he received a Ph.D. in Numerical Analysis from the Institute of Mathematical Modelling (DTU) and in 2009 he was awarded the degree of Dr.Techn. from DTU for substantial and lasting contributions that has helped to move his research area forward and penetrated into applications.
After graduation, he was appointed in 1995 as Visiting Assistant Professor at Brown University, then in 1999 as Assistant Professor and in 2003 he was promoted Associate Professor of Applied Mathematics with Tenure at Brown University where in July 2005 he was promoted to Professor of Applied Mathematics.
In 2013 he joined EPFL  École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne where he was appointed Full Professor of Computational Mathematics and Simulation Science^{[4]}, and shortly later, in February 2014, he founded the new unit of Scientific IT and Application Support (SCITAS)^{[5]}.
