Carmona selected as Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics fellow
Rene Carmona, a Princeton professor of operations research and financial engineering, has been selected as a fellow of the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics for his outstanding contributions to the field of applied mathematics.
Carmona will be one of 189 researchers’ chosen for the fellowships which are being awarded for the first time this year.
“Reflecting the diversity of the SIAM membership, these men and women come from five continents, and work in academia, industry, and government laboratories," said SIAM President Douglas N. Arnold. “Advancing the frontiers of research in branches of mathematics as distinct as number theory and partial differential equations, these professionals have applied their work to endeavors ranging from mining to medicine. They have designed algorithms to make computing possible and written textbooks to train the next generation of mathematicians. Their contributions are truly outstanding."
The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics is an international community of over 12,000 individual members, including applied and computational mathematicians, computer scientists, and other scientists and engineers.
Carmona, the Paul Wythes '55 Professor of Engineering and Finance, studies the application of mathematical modeling to a range of fields, including risk analysis in banking and finance. He joined the faculty of Princeton in 1995.
