Tian '17 and Du Receive SIAM Review SIGEST Award

Feb 20 2020

A paper written by Dr. Xiaochuan Tian (PhD 2017, Applied Mathematics) and Prof. Qiang Du, "Asymptotically Compatible Schemes for Robust Discretization of Parametrized Problems with Applications to Nonlocal Models," originally published in the SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis (SINUM), was selected as a SIGEST paper and appeared in first issue of the 2020 SIAM Review (SIREV).

SIREV is the flagship journal of SIAM (Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics) and, arguably, the most impactful journal in applied math. The SIGEST section features an outstanding paper, previously published in one of SIAM's specialized research journals, that is of general interest to the 10,000+ readers of SIREV. SIAM considers this an award and a list of SIGEST papers and authors appears annually in SIAM News.

As noted by the editors, Dr. Tian previously won the "Best PhD dissertation award" in 2018 from the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM), the largest professional organization to promote women in mathematics. Following her graduation from Columbia Engineering, Dr. Tian worked as a Bing Instructor at UT Austin. She will soon join UC San Diego as a tenure track faculty member in fall 2020.
