Dr. Ivan Sudakow is an assistant professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Dayton. He is also a Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics Scholar. From 2012 to 2015, he held the position of research assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Utah.  

Dr. Sudakow has a Master's Degree in Physics and a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics. The German Federal Government awarded him the title "Green Talent" in 2013 for "his outstanding research of sea ice and his strong commitment to interdisciplinary interaction between mathematics and climate science".

He specializes in data analysis and mathematical modeling for physical and living systems. Particularly, he develops new methods of applied mathematics, nonlinear and statistical physics tailored to the needs of the Earth, environmental and planetary sciences.
