Dhillon and Ghattas elected SIAM fellows

2014 SIAM Fellows Inderjit Dhillon and Omar Ghattas

Two ICES faculty members have been elected 2014 fellows of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).

Inderjit Dhillon, director of the ICES Center for Big Data Analytics, and Omar Ghattas, director of the ICES Center for Computational Geosciences and Optimization, were chosen based on their “outstanding contributions to fields served by SIAM.”

Dhillon’s current research interests include large-scale data mining, machine learning, network analysis, numerical optimization and scientific computing. Ghattas’ research interests span topics in the simulation and modeling of complex mechanical, geological, and biological systems, with a specific interest in inverse problems and associated uncertainty quantification for large-scale systems.

SIAM is an international organization dedicated to solving real-world problems by fostering the development of applied mathematical and computational methodologies. It currently has over 13,000 members.
