Jan Mandel's undergraduate education was in Informatics with specialization in Mathematical Economics and his M.S. thesis was in Discrete Optimization. Ph.D. area was Numerical and Approximate Methods and his thesis was in iterative aggregation methods.

He has published papers on fast solvers for large linear systems and parallel computing (multigrid and domain decomposition).

He has been recently interested in wildfire modeling, probability and statistics, data assimilation, and Kalman filters.

He has received grants and contracts from the NSF, NIH, NASA, and Sandia National Laboratory, published over a 100 papers, and graduated 8 PhD students.
