Jonatan Lenells grew up in Växjö, Sweden. After completing his Ph.D. degree in mathematics at Lund University in Sweden in 2006, he served as a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara (2006-2007), and as a Marie Curie Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge, UK (2007–2009). Before joining the Baylor University faculty in 2010, he spent one year (2009-2010) at the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz University in Germany. Interspersed with his doctoral studies, he spent over a year overseas doing relief work with a nonprofit organization. Dr. Lenells' research focuses on partial differential equations (PDEs) and their applications to problems in mathematical physics. He is particularly interested in boundary value problems for nonlinear systems. Other research areas include Einstein’s theory of relativity and the geometry of diffeomorphism groups.
