Video Profile

Daniele Struppa, Ph.D., is currently the Chancellor at Chapman University (Orange, California), a position he held for the last ten years, and as of September 1st 2016 he will become the 13th President of Chapman University.

Dr. Struppa earned his laurea in mathematics from the University of Milan, Italy, and received his doctorate degree in mathematics from the University of Maryland, College Park.  He has received several awards and honors including the prestigious Bartolozzi Prize from the Italian Mathematical Union (in 1981), and the Matsumae Medal from the Matsumae International Foundation of Tokyo (1987).

Prior to coming to Chapman University, Dr. Struppa had a distinguished career as a Professor of Mathematics and occupied positions at the University of Milano (Italy), at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa (Italy), at the University of Calabria (Italy) and since 1987, at George Mason University in Virginia. While at George Mason, Dr. Struppa served as director of the Center for the Applications of Mathematics, as chair of the Department of Mathematical Sciences, and as associate dean for graduate studies. In 1997, he was selected dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at George Mason University, a position he held until he joined Chapman University.

Dr. Struppa is the author of more than 200 refereed publications, and he is the editor of several volumes. He has edited or co-authored more than ten books, including Bicomplex Holomorphic Functions (2015), Regular Functions of a Quaternionic Variable (2013), Noncommutative Functional Calculus: Theory and Applications of Slice Hyperholomorphic Functions (2011), Analysis of Dirac Systems and Computational Algebra (2004), Fundamentals of Algebraic Microlocal Analysis (1999), and The Fundamental Principle for Systems of Convolution Equations (1983).

While serving as chancellor, Dr. Struppa has continued his scholarly research focusing on Fourier analysis and its applications to a variety of problems including the algebraic analysis of systems of differential equations, signal processing, quantum physics, and pattern recognition.
