December 14, 2015


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.

In her candidate statement, Li wrote that she would like to engage with the SIAM community in developing better approaches in the areas of:

  1. nurturing non-traditional areas that require cross-cutting technologies, such as analysis of experimental data from scientific instruments,
  2. facilitating closer collaboration between theoreticians and practitioners through joint appointments, conferences and publications,
  3. providing more opportunities to involve graduate students and junior scholars, and promoting diversity.
