Susanne Brenner has recently been elected as a Fellow of the American
Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). This honor is
bestowed on her for "advancement in finite element, multi-grid, and domain
decomposition methods, and for service to the computational and applied
mathematics community."

The American Mathematical Society (AMS) has also recently named Brenner as
a member of the 2012 inaugural class of Fellows.  Members were named thus
for their outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement,
communication,and utilization of mathematics.

Brenner is the Michael F. and Roberta Nesbit McDonald Professor at
Louisiana State University, holding appointments with both the
Department of Mathematics and the Center for Computation & Technology
(CCT). At the CCT, she also serves as the associate director of academic

In 2010, she was named Fellow of the Society of Industrial and Applied
Mathematics (SIAM). In 2011 she was awarded the AWM-SIAM Sonia Kovalevsky
Lecture, a prize awarded by the Association for Women in Mathematics and the
Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.   She is also a recipient of a
2005 Humboldt Award for Senior U.S. Scientists from the Alexander
von Humboldt Foundation in Bonn, Germany.

Currently, Brenner serves as managing editor of the journal Mathematics of
She also serves on the editorial boards of the Notices of
the American Mathematical Society, SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis,
Numerische Mathematik, Numerical Algorithms, Electronic Transactions on
Numerical Analysis, and the SIAM Classics in Applied Mathematics
. She
serves on the SIAM Book Committee, the Scientific Council of the Center
International de Mathematiques Pures et Appliquees (since 2009),
the National Advisory Committee of the Statistical and Applied
Mathematical Sciences Institute (SAMSI)  (since 2010) and the AMS Council
(since 2012). She is a past SIAM Vice President for Publications and
served on the SIAM Council.

In addition, Brenner has received numerous accolades throughout the
year, with a sampling listed below:

•   she was invited to be one of the plenary speakers at the 36th
   Annual SIAM Southeastern Atlantic Section Conference, March 24 - 25,
   2012 at the University of Alabama in Huntsville;

•   she has accepted an invitation to be one of the plenary speakers
   at the Fourth Chilean Workshop on Numerical Analysis of Partial
   Differential Equations, 14-18 January 2013, in Concepcion, Chile

•   she's accepted an invitation to present the Babuska Lecture at
   MAFELAP 2013, (The Mathematics of Finite Elements and Applications
   2013), 11-14 June 2013, at Brunel University, London;

•   she was one of the plenary speakers at the International
   Conference on Computational Sciences, which was held July 16-20, 2012,
   at the Shanghai Normal University in Shanghai, China;

•   she's been selected to be a Distinguished Visiting Professor at the
   Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, India.

Brenner’s research interests include numerical analysis, finite element
methods, multi-grid methods and domain decomposition methods. For more
