A native of Poland, Dr. Wojciech L. Golik has been Professor of Mathematics at Lindenwood since 2002 and Chair of Division of Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics and Pre-Engineering since 2008. He and his wife Joletta have lived in St. Louis since 1988. They have two sons, both dentists, who live in Atlanta and New York City.

Dr. Golik has an M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from Poznan Technological University in Poland. After graduation he worked for a year in Poland as an engineer. In 1983 he came to the US where he earned an M.Sc. and Ph.D, both in Mathematics, from New Mexico State University. He has taught mathematics and computer science courses for nearly 30 years at New Mexico State University, University of Missouri at St. Louis, St. Louis Community College, Webster University, and Lindenwood University.

Dr. Golik is a member of the Mathematical Association of America, the American Mathematical Society, and the American Contract Bridge League.

Dr. Golik primary research interest lie in the area of numerical analysis, in particular, in numerical solutions of differential and integral equations (DIEs). His research papers dealt with optimizing the performance of numerical algorithms for DIEs with respect to their speed and accuracy of approximations. His most recent research papers dealt with algorithm improvements for computational electromagnetics, a branch of computational mathematics used in computer simulations of electromagnetic phenomena.

Dr. Golike have taught about 30 different mathematics, computer science, and engineering courses during his professional career. Recently he has taught courses in Statistics, Calculus, History of Mathematics, and Linear Algebra.
