Nicholas Boros

College of Arts and Sciences


Ph.D. (Mathematics), 2012, Michigan State University
B.A. (Physics), 2003, University of Michigan–Flint
B.A. (Mathematics), 2003, University of Michigan–Flint

Dr. Boros joined Olivet’s faculty in 2012 after teaching at Michigan State University for seven years. He teaches calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, numerical analysis, real analysis and Senior Seminar.

His research interests lie in sharply estimating Fourier multiplier operators using techniques in harmonic analysis. His research has been published in Advances in Mathematics Journal, Indiana University Mathematics Journal, Comptes Rendus Mathématique and Journal de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées. He has presented his work on harmonic analysis for the American Mathematics Society and Mathematical Association of America annual meetings, INRIA Sophia Antipolis Méditerranée (France), Instituto Matemáticas Universidad Sevilla (Spain), Institut Mittag – Leffler (Sweden), and Fields Institute (Canada).

While at Michigan State, Dr. Boros received the Senior Graduate Teaching Award. His teaching assignments included serving as the Charles Drew Science Scholars mathematics instructor, the Math Enrichment for Student Athletes instructor, and the Engineering and Science Summer Academy “Bridge Program” mathematics instructor. Much of his focus was working with underrepresented students in the STEM fields, who began in remedial math, yet had career aspirations that required graduate or professional school.

He is a member of the Mathematical Association of America, American Mathematical Society and Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences. For the 2012-2013 academic year, he was a Project NExT fellow.

Tending toward the eclectic, he enjoys traveling and eating ethnic foods from other countries. When he’s off campus, you might find him watching one of his favorite international or independent films.

Dr. Boros and his wife, Lindsey, are the parents of Elizabeth and Katelyn, and family time is one of his top priorities.
