Andrea Bertozzi Named as 2010 SIAM Fellow
UCLA Mathematics Professor Andrea Bertozzi was selected as one of 34 new fellows of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) for her contributions to the application of mathematics in compressible flow, thin films, image processing, and swarming. The fellows program was inaugurated last year as an honorific designation conferred on members distinguished for their key contributions to the fields of applied mathematics and computational science. Professor Emeritus Tony Chan (President, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology) was also named as a fellow this year. Applied math faculty members Russel Caflisch and Stanley Osher were named SIAM fellows in 2009.
