Dr. Stephen (Steve) Billups is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at the University of Colorado Denver (UCD), with research interests in Optimization, Operations Research, and Computational Biology. He earned a Ph.D. in Computer Science and an M.S. degree in Mathematics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison; an M.S. in Computer Science and Applications from Virginia Tech, and a B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science from George Mason University. Prior to completing his Ph.D., Steve worked at Sandia National Laboratories as a Computer Scientist. While at UCD, Dr. Billups has served as director of the Center for Computational Biology, director of the Applied Mathematics Graduate program, and director of the Mathematics Clinic program - a distinctive program at UCD, which engages graduate and advanced undergraduate students in challenging applied research projects supported by industry sponsors.
