Professor Joseph Awange joined the Department of Spatial Sciences (Curtin University, Australia) in 2006 under a Curtin Research Fellowship and concurrently undertook the prestigious Alexander von Humboldt (AvH) Fellowship at the Geodetic Institute (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany) having been awarded the Australian 2008-2011 Ludwig Leichhardt Memorial Fellowship for experienced researchers. In 2015, he won all the three major Fellowship Awards: Alexander von Humboldt (Germany), Japan Society of Promotion of Science (Japan) and Brazil Frontier of Science (Brazil) to carry out research in those countries. At Curtin University, he is currently engaged in teaching and research having attracted more than $1.5M worth of research grants. He obtained his BSc and MSc degrees in Surveying from the University of Nairobi (Kenya), and was also awarded a merit scholarship by the German Academic Exchange Program (DAAD), which facilitated his obtaining a second MSc degree and PhD in Geodesy at Stuttgart University (Germany). In 2002-2004, he was awarded the prestigious Japan Society for Promotion of Science (JSPS) Fellowship to pursue postdoctoral research at Kyoto University (Japan). Prof Awange attained International Editorial role in Springer Earth Science Books and has authored 11 scholarly books with the prestigious Springer publishers and more than 130 peer-reviewed high impact journal publications (in e,g., Remote Sensing of Environment, Journal of Climate, Climatic Change, Advances in Water Resources, International Journal of Climatology, and Journal of Hydrology among others).
"The focus of this book is clearly on applications of contemporary
mathematical concepts and algorithms using HSNC. ... This book is
also suitable for undergraduate-level classes with some background
in linear algebra, in particular for courses emphasizing
computation with high-level CAS software." (Eric L. Geist, Pure and
Applied Geophysics, Vol. 177, 2020)
"This book deals with versatile aspects of numerical and symbolic computing solutions to systems of polynomial equations, optimization of systems, and data processing and modeling with applications in the domain of geoscience ... . The text is written in a clear and didactic way which makes the book a valuable literature for a broad spectrum of readers from graduate students, professionals in computer programing techniques, to those solving concrete practical problems in geoscience and other fields."
