April 11, 2014
Yuriko Renardy, Class of 1950 Endowed Professor of Mathematics in the College of Science at Virginia Tech, has been selected as one of 32 new Fellows in the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.
Renardy was selected for fellowship for her contributions to fluid dynamics of interfacial instabilities through the mathematical analysis and numerical studies of viscous, viscoelastic, and thermal effects.
Her area of research focuses on fluid mechanics, addressing problems associated with fluid flow and polymer manufacturing.
Renardy has published more than 126 peer-reviewed papers and two books over the course of her career. In addition to her fellowship with SIAM, she has also been selected as a Fellow of the American Physical Society, and the Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications in the United Kingdom. She sits on the editorial board of the Journal of Non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics, and is a past associate editor of the IMA Journal of Applied Mathematics.
Renardy received her bachelor's degree from The Australian National University and her doctoral degree from the University of Western Australia.
The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics is an international organization with more than 14,000 members from 85 countries and serves to advance the discipline of applied mathematics and computational science by publishing books and peer-reviewed research journals.
