ICES professor Irene Gamba is recognized in the October issue of SIAM News for receiving the Sonia Kovalevsky Lecture prize, an award that highlights significant contributions of women in applied or computational mechanics. The prize is jointly awarded by the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).
Gamba received the prize for her accomplishments in analytical and numerical methods for statistical transport problems in complex particle systems, as well as for her dedicated service to the mathematics community. Her service includes participating in scientific, policy and editorial committees, as well as training postdocs and graduate students, including other women mathematicians.
Gamba’s prize lecture, which she delivered at the meeting, was titled “The Evolution of Complex Interactions in Non-Linear Kinetic Systems.”
