Portrait of Sean Kramer

Sean Kramer, Ph.D., specializes in attacking some important environmental problems related to oceanography with remote sensing tools, often mounted on ocean-observing satellites.

He modeled the spread of the oil slick resulting from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. Satellite data was combined with ocean currents to explain how the oil slick moved around the Gulf. The work was funded by the Office of Naval Research and is now applied toward understanding how large-scale harmful algal blooms will move about coastal regions and large lakes.

Kramer studied in Malawi and Zambia as a part of a burgeoning effort funded by the National Science Foundation to foster relationships between U.S. and African mathematicians. He participated in the inaugural MASAMU (mathematics in Southern Africa) workshop in 2011 and has sent a student to Namibia for the annual conference. As part of the group, Kramer and his students work on modeling endemic diseases found in Sub-Saharan Africa.

He studied at Eastern University, Villanova University, and completed his PhD in mathematics at Clarkson University in 2013. He joined the Norwich faculty in 2013, and serves as an associate professor of mathematics. He teaches with an eye on the application of techniques toward active problems in modeling.
