Lisa Fauci

    Brief Bio

    Lisa Fauci received her PhD from the Courant Institute at New York University and is the Pendergraft Nola Lee Haynes Professor of Mathematics at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. She is an applied mathematician whose research lies at the interface of scientific computing and biology, with emphasis in biological fluid dynamics. A focus of her work has been the development of models and numerical methods that capture the coupling of actuated elastic structures with a surrounding fluid. Such models have been used to understand biological processes such as sperm motility, the neuromechanics of fish locomotion and phytoplankton dynamics in the ocean.

    Lisa Fauci was named an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow in 1992 and a Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) in 2012. She was the founding director of Tulane's Center for Computational Science (2001), where she is now an Associate Director. She is currently an elected member of the Council of the American Mathematical Society and an elected member of SIAM's Board of Trustees.
