Dr. Van Groningen enjoys the appeal of teaching a wide variety of mathematics classes from Finite Mathematics to the Calculus sequence to Differential Equations.
Dr. Van Groningen considers himself a pure applied mathematician whose main research interest lies within numerical analysis. His primary work is with numerical solvers of differential equations including the method of lines transpose and defect correction methods. However, with the opportunities present at Anderson University, he prefers research projects that can help introduce students to original mathematical research.
Dr. Van Groningen married his beautiful wife Lindsey in July of 2016. Together they actively travel and seek adventure. Dr. Van Groningen is also an avid hiker, runner, and reader. He is always willing to join in for most sports and board games. Further, he also donates his time to the local food pantry.
Dr. Lee Van Groningen has served at Anderson University since 2012.
