Dr. George Lytle
Dr. George Lytle is an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the University of Montevallo. He earned a PhD in Mathematics from the University of Kentucky in 2019 where he worked in the areas of inverse problems and partial differential equations. He earned a B.A. in Mathematics and Spanish from Asbury University (Wilmore, KY) in 2013.
Dr. Lytle specializes in teaching courses in applied mathematics, such as Differential Equations and Numerical Analysis as well as courses in Real and Complex Analysis. While at the University of Kentucky, he was awarded the College of Arts & Sciences Certificate for Outstanding Teaching.
Dr. Lytle’s primary research interests are in applied mathematics, specifically in the area of inverse problems. His doctoral work focused on the interplay between analytical and numerical approaches to the inverse conductivity problem. He is also developing an interest in mathematical biology, varying from epidemiological models to discrete dynamical systems in gene regulation models.
Dr. Lytle is a member of the American Mathematical Society (AMS), the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). In addition to teaching, Dr. Lytle has coached COMAP’s Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM), Interdisciplinary Contest in Modeling (ICM), and SIMIODE’s Challenge Using Differential Equations in Modeling (SCUDEM).
Outside of math, Dr. Lytle and his wife M.E. are members of Ecco, a semi-professional choir whose recent performances include St. Peter’s Basilica and the Basilica of St. Ignatius in Rome, Italy.
