Sandstede named SIAM fellow

Björn Sandstede, professor and chair of applied mathematics, has been named a fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. He was recognized for “contributions to applied dynamical systems involving the computational and analytical study of pattern formation in physical and biological systems.” He joins 32 other mathematicians in this year’s class of fellows. Sandstede has been at Brown since 2008, and serves as associate director of ICERM, Brown’s NSF-funded math institute. He has previously received the SIAM Outstanding Paper Prize as well as the JD Crawford Prize, which is awarded by the SIAM Activity Group on Dynamical Systems. He has chaired the SIAM Activity Group on Nonlinear Waves and Coherent Structures and served as program director for the activity group on Dynamical Systems.
