Xiaoye "Sherry" Li, a member of CRD’s Scalable Solvers Group, has been elected to the SIAM Council. According to the bylaws of SIAM, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, “The Council shall formulate the scientific policies of SIAM, monitor its technical activities, propose new activities, and recommend action to the Board as appropriate.” In addition to 12 elected members, the council also includes the elected SIAM officers and chair of the society’s board of directors.
