Mathematics Professor Edriss Titi Named SIAM Fellow
The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) named Mathematics Professor Edriss S. Titi a 2012 fellow for his work on analytical and computational studies of nonlinear partial differential equations with applications to fluid mechanics and geophysics.
SIAM named at total of 35 academics and professionals to its 2012 class of fellows for exemplary contributions to applied mathematics and computational science. The 2012 fellows are recognized for outstanding research in the field as well as their service to the larger community. For more information on the 2012 fellows click here. Fellows will be recognized at the 2012 SIAM Annual Meeting Prizes and Awards Luncheon on July 10, 2012 in Minneapolis.
Professor Titi is a Full Professor in the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at UCI and is also appointed on the faculty of the Weizmann Institute in Israel. He has received numerous awards throughout his career. In 2004, Professor Titi was elected a fellow of the Institute of Physics (UK). Professor Titi has also won the prestigious Stanislaw M. Ulam and Orson Anderson visiting scholarships at the Los Alamos National Lab. In 2009, he received the highly prestigious Alexander von Humboldt Award for senior scientists. In 2011, Professor Titi won the SIAM activity group in Analysis of PDEs Prize. Most recently, he has been invited to give a Keynote Lecture at the International Union of Theoertical and Applied Mechanics Symposium, which will be held at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences from July 23-27, 2012.
