2011 Outstanding Mathematics Alumna — Loredana Lanzani
Loredana Lanzani received her Ph.D. in mathematics from Purdue in 1997 under the direction of Professor Steve Bell. Since then she has served on the mathematics faculty at the University of Arkansas. Her research interests are in one and several complex variables, harmonic analysis and PDEs, with focus on ambient domains with "rough" boundary. Lanzani recently began a two-year term as rotating program director in the Division of Mathematical Sciences of the National Science Foundation.
Lanzani returned to Purdue on September 29 to receive the outstanding mathematics alumna award. During her visit, she met with graduate students and gave a colloquium talk. Following the talk, awards were presented to several outstanding College of Science alumni at a dinner held in the Memorial Union.
