SIAM welcomes new Board and Council

In November, the SIAM community elected the following members to serve on the SIAM Board of Trustees and the SIAM Council, effective January 1, 2013 for a term of three-years.  SIAM wishes to thank all of the candidates for their participation.

BOARD OF TRUSTEES

Lisa Fauci was elected to continue her term on the Board of Trustees. Dr. Fauci is Pendergraft Nola Lee Haynes Professor of Mathematics at Tulane Univeristy. Her research spans the areas of fluid dynamics, mathematical biology, and computational science.  She has previously served on the SIAM Council, and is a past Chair of the SIAM Activity Group on Life Sciences. She also serves as Associate Editor for the SIAM Journal on Applied Dynamical Systems. She was recognized as a SIAM Fellow in 2012 for her contributions to computational biofluid dynamics.

George Papanicolaou of Stanford University has been elected to the Board of Trustees. He is Robert Grimmett Professor in Mathematics at Stanford University. Dr. Papanicolaou’s research interest is in financial mathematics, specifically, in the use of asymptotics for stochastic equations in analyzing complex models of financial markets and data analysis. Dr. Papanicolaou received the SIAM John von Neumann Lecture in 2006 and is a SIAM Fellow. He has served as Editor for several SIAM Journals including SIAM Review and the SIAM Journal on Applied Mathematics.

Fadil Santosa, a professor of mathematics at the University of Minnesota, has been elected to the Board of Trustees. Dr. Santosa is the Director of the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications (IMA). His field of study includes inverse problems, optics, photonics, and optimal design. Dr. Santosa has served on several SIAM committees, including the membership and industry committees. He was been a member of the editorial boards of SIAM Review and the SIAM Journal on Applied Mathematics. Dr. Santosa is a Class of 2010 SIAM Fellow.

COUNCIL MEMBERS

L. Craig Evans of the University of California, Berkeley, has been elected to continue his term on the Council. A professor in the Department of Mathematics at UC-Berkeley, his area of interest is in nonlinear partial differential equations, calculus of variations, and optimal control theory. He has previously served as Vice Chair of the SIAM Activity Group on Analysis of Partial Differential Equations.

Tim Davis of the University of Florida will continue his term on the Council. He is a professor in the Department of Computer and Information Science and Engineering. His research interests are in sparse direct methods, graph algorithms, and combinatorial scientific computing. Dr. Davis is a member of several SIAM activity groups including Computational Science and Engineering, Supercomputing, Linear Algebra, and Optimization. He currently serves on the SIAM Industry Committee and is a SIAM book author.

Carol Woodward, Project Leader at the Center for Applied Scientific Computing (CASC) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, will continue her term on the Council. Her research is in the areas of scientific simulation and verification, numerical methods for nonlinear partial differential equations, iterative methods, and parallel computing. She has held several positions for the Activity Group on Computational Science and Engineering, and is currently the group’s Vice Chair. She has served as an organizing committee member for many SIAM conferences, including the Annual Meeting and the Conference on Computational Science and Engineering.

Andreas Griewank has been elected to the Council. He is the Director of the Institute of Mathematics at the Humboldt-Universität of Berlin. His research interests are in numerical analysis, general nonlinear and large scale design optimization, algorithmic/automatic differentiation, non-smooth analysis and optimal control. He is a member of the SIAM Activity Group on Optimization, and serves on the SIAM News editorial board. He is a SIAM book author.
