Professor Sigal Gottlieb recognized for promoting the success of women in mathematical and computational sciences
Sigal Gottlieb, Professor of Mathematics and founding Director of the Center for Scientific Computing and Visualization Research (CSCVR), was recently chosen as a Fellow by the Association for Women in Mathematics.
“I am very happy to announce the 2021 list of new AWM fellows. We recognize these individuals for their exceptional dedication to increasing the success and visibility of women in mathematics,” said Ruth Haas, President of the Association for Women in Mathematics.
Gottlieb was chosen for this prestigious fellowship for her exemplary and lasting work in forging an active and positive research environment, proactive outreach, effective mentoring, and promoting the success of women in mathematical and computational sciences.
“The AWM fellow status, and especially the citation, is deeply meaningful to me because it recognizes my efforts in promoting the success of colleagues in the mathematical and computational sciences,” said Gottlieb. “My dedication to fostering a positive research environment at UMass Dartmouth led to the creation of the Center for Scientific Computing and Visualization Research. The CSCVR supports over 30 faculty and their students who use and/or develop computational tools in their research. Through the CSCVR, I am able to engage in proactive outreach and mentoring of colleagues at UMassD and in other universities.”
The Center for Scientific Computing and Visualization Research at UMass Dartmouth focuses on computationally-driven research that addresses the pressing needs of modern engineering, mechanics, fluid dynamics, and electromagnetics.
Established in 2012, the CSCVR aims to promote and conduct high-level interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research in scientific computing and to mentor students -- undergraduate and graduate -- with interests in scientific computing in a supportive, broad, and deep interdisciplinary research environment.
The Center is the hub for computational scientific activity at the University that brings together students and faculty from the Departments of Physics, Mathematics, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer and Information Science, and Fisheries Oceanography. Research within the CSCVR investigates modern research problems spanning algorithms, modeling, and prototyping in the fields of engineering, physics, and mathematics.
