IPAM Remembers Charlie Doering

Posted on 5/21/21 in News

IPAM mourns the death of a colleague and friend, Charlie Doering. Charlie was the Nicholas D. Kazarinoff Collegiate Professor of Complex Systems, Mathematics and Physics, and was the Director of the Center for the Study of Complex Systems at the University of Michigan. Professor Doering’s research was focused on the analysis of mathematical models with the aim of extracting reliable, rigorous, and useful predictions. Doering was a long-time IPAM collaborator where he was a core participant of multiple programs, and was an organizer and speaker for several IPAM workshops, including the 2021 workshop, Transport and Mixing in Complex and Turbulent Flows. Doering received a number of honors during his career, including the Humboldt Research Award in 2003 and became a Simons Foundation Fellow in 2021. He is survived by his loving wife of 35 years, Paula Harlen Doering; his children, Adrienne Moira Licata, Emily Harlen Doering-White, and Evan Harlen Doering; sisters Elizabeth Doering and Elaine Teevens, and three wonderful grandchildren. He will truly be missed.
