Accomplishments at UH earn spot in French Academy of Sciences for professor

One of the world's leading researchers in applied mathematics and scientific computing, University of Houston Professor Roland Glowinski, was recently elected a member of the French Academy of Sciences.

Elected to membership on the same day as Yves Chauvin, one of the three 2005 Nobel Prize Laureates in Chemistry, Glowinski joins some of the most prominent French scholars in this organization and officially will be presented with the honor in a ceremony June 7 in France. Academy membership is a notable honor that is offered to scientists of renowned accomplishment and caliber and has as one of its missions to form associations with foreign scholars to develop scientific knowledge and education. Glowinski, who holds a Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen Professorship in Mathematics, is also a mechanical engineering professor.

"Roland Glowinski is one of the world's foremost computational scientists," said Jeff Morgan, professor and chair of the mathematics department. "He has played a major role in the development of the department of mathematics, as well as the development of computational sciences on the UH campus. I had the privilege to meet him and learn from him when I was a graduate student, and I feel fortunate to call him a friend and colleague."

Much of Glowinski's work involves computer simulations to describe scientific, medical and engineering problems mathematically. He is well known for his research on new mathematic models of particular flow and for the application of mathematical and computational methods to the design of a new class of heart valves.

Since coming to UH in 1985, Glowinski has received numerous honors, including being elected to the French National Academy of Technology, inducted as a chevalier in the Lgion d'Honneur of France and elected a member of the Academia Europaea. He also received the Esther Farfel Award, the highest honor accorded to a UH faculty member, and the Theodore von Krmn Priz
