Professor Andrea Nahmod of mathematics and statistics has been named a fellow of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) in recognition of her “contributions to nonlinear Fourier analysis, harmonic analysis, and partial differential equations, as well as service to the mathematical community.”
Nahmod is one of 63 mathematical scientists from around the world chosen for the honor by the AMS. The designation of fellow recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics, according to the society. Among the goals of the program are to create an enlarged class of mathematicians recognized by their peers as distinguished for their contributions to the profession and to honor excellence.
“It is a pleasure to join the AMS in honoring the contributions to mathematics of these newest fellows,” said AMS president David A. Vogan Jr. “I am proud to be a part of the AMS with them.”
Nahmod is the second member of her department to be named an AMS fellow. Floyd Williams was accorded the honor with the inaugural class of 2013.
