Congratulations to Professor Edriss Titi who was named a SIAM Fellow for his work on analytical and computational studies of nonlinear partial differential equations with applications to fluid mechanics and geophysics. Fellowship is an honorific designation conferred on members distinguished for their outstanding contributions to the fields of applied mathematics and computational science.

Professor Titi is a Full Professor in the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at UCI and is also appointed on the faculty of the Weizmann Institute in Israel. He has received numerous awards throughout his career. In 2004, Professor Titi was elected a fellow of the Institute of Physics (UK). Professor Titi has also won the prestigious Stanislaw M. Ulam and Orson Anderson visiting scholarships at the Los Alamos National Lab. In 2009, he received the highly prestigious Alexander von Humboldt Award for senior scientists. In 2011, Professor Titi won the SIAM activity group in Analysis of PDEs Prize. Most recently, he has been invited to give a Keynote Lecture at the International Union of Theoertical and Applied Mechanics Symposium, which will be held at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences from July 23-27, 2012.
