Isaac wins third major award for dissertation work Isaac wins third major award for dissertation work

2015 CSEM alumnus Toby Isaac received the 2016 SIAM Early Career Prize in Supercomputing, the organization's major award recognizing a young researcher working on algorithms for parallel computing in science and engineering. The prize is awarded based on publications in the past three years and candidates must be no more than three
years out of a Ph.D. program.

Isaac's prize was announced at the SIAM PP16 Conference in Paris.

The honor recognizes his work on developing scalable, adaptive methods for forward and inverse problems in continental-scale ice sheet modeling, which was the focus of his dissertation which recently won the ICES Outstanding Dissertation Award. Read more.

New York Times features Ivo Babuska as dispelling ageism New York Times features Ivo Babuska as dispelling ageism

Written by Manil Suri, mathematics professor at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

I RECENTLY attended a conference in honor of Ivo Babuska, a professor at the University of Texas, with whom I have written several mathematical papers. There were toasts with a crowd-pleasing (if prudently priced) malbec and puns riffing on “singular value decomposition” that elicited much mirth. After all, it was also Ivo’s 90th-birthday party.

Ivo remains passionately immersed in research, despite the dearly held popular belief that mathematicians are over the hill at 40. Read more.

Cardiologist Kent Beasley Brings Computational Science to the Clinic Cardiologist Kent Beasley Brings Computational Science to the Clinic

When ICES' computational medicine research meets clinical applications, cardiologist Dr. Kent Beasley is there with the bedside manner uniquely provided by a physician with more than 40 years of clinical practice.

For the past decade, Beasley, now a clinical professor at the ICES Center for Cardiovascular Simulation led by Michael Sacks, has been teaching a course on clinical cardiology (CSE 397). Since the class’s inception, it has promoted computational medicine because Beasley believes it represents the next evolution in cardiac care. Read more.
