Irene Gamba: 2024 Math Is Key

Dr. Gamba earned her Ph.D. in mathematics at the University of Chicago in 1989 under the supervision of Jim Douglas. After postdoctoral studies at Purdue University and an NSF postdoctoral fellowship at the Courant Institute she became assistant and associate professor at NYU. She joined the University of Texas at Austin in 1997 as a full professor. 

Irene M. Gamba has served on the Scientific Advisory Board of IPAM (UCLA) and SAMSI (Research Triangle, NC) and starting January 2020 has joined the MSRI Mathematics NSF Institutes. She has been Chair and Program Director of the SIAM Activity Group on the Analysis of Partial Differential Equation. She currently serves on the editorial board of several journals and is currently an editor for the Bulletin of the AMS, the Journal of Mathematical Fluid Dynamics, and SIAM Journal on Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Modeling and Numerical Analysis among others. In addition, she has authored more than 100 research articles and her work has been and currently is funded by NSF and U.S. Department of Energy programs. Irene M. Gamba has held invited visiting positions at many universities and institutes, both nationally and internationally. 

Her scientific interests are analytical and computational issues in collisional kinetic theory including the evolution Boltzmann and Landau type equations in mean field regimes, gas mixture systems and quantum Boltzmann condensation in low temperatures regimes. Applications of these models range from plasma dynamics such as electron runaway transport, charged transport in nanodevices, approximations to classical fluid dynamics models and coupling of quantum gas system in the formation of condensates.
