Thursday, October 25, 2018

LAWRENCE — Xuemin Tu, University of Kansas associate professor of mathematics, was elected secretary to the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) Central States Section for a two-year term beginning Jan. 1, 2019. The central states section serves SIAM members in Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma.

The purpose of this section is to enhance the communication among the section members, promote the collaboration for both basic research and applications of mathematics to industry and science, represent applied and computational mathematics in the entire central region, and support the SIAM mission in the central region of the United States. Participation in SIAM Central States Section activities are open to all institutions and industries in the region with an interest in applied and computational mathematics.  The KU Department of Mathematics will host the central states regional meeting in fall 2020.

Tu’s research interests are in data assimilation, uncertainty quantification, numerical partial differential equations and scientific computing. She received her doctorate in 2006 from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University. Before coming to KU in 2010, she held postdoctoral positions at the University of California-Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
