Professor Susanne C. Brenner was named AWM Fellow by the Association for Women in Mathematics. The AWM recognized her "For being a role model nationally and internationally due to her widely-known work in finite element methods; for her promotion of women in mathematics via the Women in Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing network, as mentor of Ph.D.s, and as advisor of graduate and undergraduate students."
Susanne C. Brenner received her PhD in 1988 at the University of Michigan. She joined the LSU math department in 2006, coming from the University of South Carolina, where she was Professor and Associate Chair. Her appointment is joint with CCT, where she is the Associate Director for Academic Affairs. In 2017 she was named LSU Boyd Professor, the highest and most prestigious professorial rank awarded by the LSU system.
Susanne C. Brenner's research interests lie in Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing, In the LSU math department she built-up and leads the very successful Scientific Computing group. She published over 120 papers, and she currently is on the editorial board of eight journals. The NSF appointed her to its Advisory Committee for Mathematical and Physical Sciences. Susanne C. Brenner is an AMS Fellow (Inaugural Class), a SIAM Fellow, a AAAS Fellow, and now an AWM Fellow.
