Professor Donatella Danielli selected as a Fellow of the AWM

10-04-2019

Professor Donatella Danielli has been selected for inclusion in the 2020 class of Fellows of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM). 

The AWM Fellows Program recognizes individuals who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to the support and advancement of women in the mathematical sciences, consistent with the AWM mission: “to encourage women and girls to study and to have active careers in the mathematical sciences, and to promote equal opportunity and the equal treatment of women and girls in the mathematical sciences.”

The description of Professor Danielli's contributions leading to her selection as AWM Fellow reads

For her generous and consistent involvement in, and remarkable impact on, a large number of excellent local, national, and international initiatives to support interest and involvement of women in mathematics at all levels; and for remarkable, pioneering contributions positioning her as a role model for more junior mathematicians, particularly women.


Professor Danielli earned her PhD in Mathematics from Purdue University in 1999, then held a position as Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins University before returning in 2001 to Purdue, where she is Professor of Mathematics.  She is also a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society and has received several awards and distinctions for her teaching, research, and leadership.

About the AWM

The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) is a non-profit organization founded in 1971.  The AWM currently has more than 3500 members (women and men) representing a broad spectrum of the mathematical community — from the United States and around the world.

The AWM is a leading society for women in the mathematical sciences, and is one of the societies comprising the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences. AWM’s programs not only support those who participate in them directly, but also help influence the mathematics culture more generally, so that young women entering the field today encounter an environment that is more nurturing than that of the 1970’s and 1980’s. AWM has played a critical role in increasing the presence and visibility of women in the mathematical sciences in the nearly 50 year History of the AWM.
