SIAM’s new President Elect L. Pamela Cook has been named Unidel Professor of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Delaware.
The award is from the Unidel Foundation, which makes grants to finance projects to enrich educational programs at the University of Delaware. The foundation was established by Amy E. du Pont who supported women’s education in Delaware and bequeathed her estate to create the foundation.
Professor Cook chaired University of Delaware’s Department of Mathematical Sciences for nine years. She was also Chair of the University’s Commission on the Status of Women for six years.
Dr. Cook’s areas of research include viscoelastic fluid flows, perturbation analysis, fluid mechanics, and transonic aerodynamics, among other applications of mathematics.
She is a SIAM Fellow, and was elected SIAM President for 2015-16 in SIAM’s fall elections.
