Wettlaufer selected as 2023 SIAM Fellow

June 2, 2023

The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) recently selected Yale’s John S. Wettlaufer as one of its 2023 fellows.

SIAM is an international community of more than 14,000 members, including applied and computational mathematicians, computer scientists, and engineers. New fellows are honored for their role as leading thinkers and ambassadors of applied mathematics and computational science.

Wettlaufer, the A.M. Bateman Professor of Geophysics, Mathematics, and Physics in Yale’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences, was recognized for his fundamental contributions to the modeling of interfacial problems, the study of ice, geophysics, and climate dynamics. Wettlaufer is one of 26 new SIAM fellows.

“It is a privilege to have had my work recognized, and I hope that the diversity of applied math at Yale, from analysis to computation and everything between, will continue to be recognized both within and outside the university,” Wettlaufer said. “Indeed, as a longtime dean of undergraduate studies for applied mathematics, I have the privilege of guiding students through the myriad of potentialities that a quantitative approach allows them to explore, and I look forward to seeing some of them involved in the SIAM community in the future.”

Wettlaufer joins Yale faculty members Vladimir RokhlinMitchell Smooke, and the late Stanley Eisenstat as SIAM Fellows.
