Chandrajit Bajaj has been selected as a Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) "for fundamental contributions to applied mathematics algorithms in geometric modeling, imaging science, bioinformatics, and data visualization." SIAM Fellows are designated each year to recognize members of the community for their distinguished contributions to the disciplines of applied mathematics, computational science and related fields.
Professor Bajaj is a Professor of Computer Science and the Director of the Center for Computational Visualization at the University of Texas at Austin. He has served as an editorial member for the SIAM Journal on Imaging Sciences. His research is focused on developing applied mathematics algorithms in geometric modeling, imaging data sciences, bio-informatics, and data visualization. He has been a keynote speaker at previous SIAM conferences and is a SIAM author.
In addition to raising the visibility of applied mathematics and computational science, the SIAM Fellows Program helps makes SIAM members more competitive for awards and honors as well as leadership positions in the broader society.
