Listen: Mathematician Andrea Bertozzi Delivers 2014 Sigma Xi Lecture

Andrea Bertozzi is an applied mathematician with expertise in nonlinear partial differential equations and fluid dynamics. She also works in the areas of geometric methods for image processing, crime modeling and analysis, and swarming/cooperative dynamics. 

Bertozzi is Professor of Mathematics, Betsy Wood Knapp Chair for Innovation and Creativity and Director of Applied Mathematics at the University of California Los Angeles. She also currently serves as chair of the Science Board of the NSF Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics at Brown University and serves on the Science Boards for the Banff International Research Station and the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute at Berkeley.

Sigma Xi is a national organization devoted to promoting scientific research. Swarthmore's chapter promotes scientific research among students, faculty, and staff through hosting dinners and public lectures, sponsoring a student research poster session each fall, and providing funding opportunities to further student research.

The next Sigma Xi lecture is Oct. 20 at 8:00pm in Science Center 101 and features Professor of Integrative Biology Tyrone Hayes on "From Silent Spring To Silent Night: A Tale of Toads and Men."
