Every two years, SIAM presents the Ralph E. Kleinman Prize to one individual for “outstanding research, or other contributions, that bridge the gap between mathematics and applications.” This year, UCLA Professor of Mathematics and Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Andrea Bertozzi is the selected recipient. Andrea will receive the award in July 2019 at the International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM 2019) in Valencia, Spain.

Established in 1998 in memory of Ralph E. Kleinman, the prize recognizes work that uses high-level mathematics and/or invents new mathematical tools to solve applied problems from engineering, science, and technology.
