2011-12 Recap: Greg Forest named as a SIAM Fellow

Prof. M. Gregory Forest, a Grant Dahlstrom Distinguished Professor of Mathematics with joint appointment in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, was named to the Class of 2012 Fellows of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). The SIAM Fellows Program designates “certain members who have made outstanding contributions to fields served by SIAM.”

The text accompanying the naming of Forest as a Fellow singles him out for “contributions to integrable and nearly integrable partial differential equations, material science, and to polymeric, liquid crystalline, and biological and biomedical fluid mechanics.”

Forest becomes the second member of the Department of Mathematics to be named to the list of SIAM Fellows, in only the 4th year of the Fellows Program.

Forest joins our colleague Prof. Christopher K. R. T. Jones, a Bill Guthridge Distinguished Professor of Mathematics, who was named as a SIAM Fellow in the Class of 2011. Jones’ designation as a Fellow identified him for “contributions to dynamical systems, nonlinear partial differential equations, and applications in nonlinear optics, ocean dynamics, and neuroscience.”

Congratulations to Greg and Chris for these well-earned honors.
