Professor David Silvester of The University of Manchester’s Department of Mathematics has been elected a 2023 Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) .

A Professor of Applied Mathematics, he has been recognised for contributions to finite elements and computational fluid dynamics.

SIAM is an international community of over 14,000 individual members. It was incorporated in 1952 as a non-profit organisation to convey useful mathematical knowledge to other professionals who might implement mathematical theory for practical, industrial or scientific use.

Its mission - through publications, research and community - is to build cooperation between mathematics and the worlds of science and technology.

The goals of its Fellows Program are to honour SIAM members recognised by their peers as distinguished for their contributions to the discipline; to help make outstanding SIAM members more competitive for awards and honours; and to support the advancement of SIAM members to leadership positions in their own institutions and broader society.
