Margot Gerritsen

Associate professor of energy resources and engineering

Margot Gerritsen is a professor in energy resources engineering and the director of the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering.

After receiving her master’s degree in applied mathematics in the Netherlands, Gerritsen moved to the United States in search of “hillier and sunnier places.” She received her doctorate in scientific computing and computational mathematics at Stanford, and later became a faculty member at the University of Auckland in New Zealand. Gerritsen specializes in renewable and fossil energy production, and in computational mathematics. She is also active in coastal ocean dynamics and yacht design.
