Biography:

Dr. Florentina Tone-Foreman, Professor, is a past winner of UWF’s Distinguished Research and Creative Activities Award. Tone-Foreman, who holds a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Indiana University, conducts research on convergence, stability and error analysis of numerical schemes for partial differential equations. Her work has been published in SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis, Numerische Mathematik, Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations, International Journal of Numerical Analysis and Modeling, and elsewhere.

She has been invited to speak at numerous national and international conferences. Since joining UWF in 2006 Tone-Foreman taught both graduate and undergraduate courses, both in classrooms and online, and supervised students on research projects. Courses include Complex Analysis, Ordinary Differential Equations, Numerical Analysis, Linear Algebra, Calculus and Pre-calculus. She has both a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree in Mathematics from the University of Bucharest in Romania.
