The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) has selected 28 members, including Professor Mason Porter (University of California, Los Angeles), to join the 2019 Class of SIAM Fellows. According to SIAM, these distinguished members were nominated for their exemplary research as well as outstanding service to the community. Through their contributions, SIAM Fellows help advance the fields of applied mathematics and computational science.

“I first became a member of SIAM as an undergraduate. I figured it would be a good thing for a young applied mathematician to do. Among all professional societies I am in, SIAM is the one in which I am most heavily involved, so it’s nice to be recognized by them, ” says Porter, whose research focuses on networks, complex systems, and nonlinear systems. 

The 2019 Class of SIAM Fellows will be recognized at the 2020 SIAM Annual Meeting in Toronto, alongside the Class of 2020. Read here to learn more about the SIAM Fellowship program.
