About the PNAS Member Editor
Name Berger, Marsha J.
Location New York University
Primary Field Applied Mathematical Sciences
Secondary Field Computer and Information Sciences
 Election Citation
By combining ingenious numerical algorithms and computer science techniques, Berger has created a new methodology for flow computation. Notably, her adaptive methods have advanced the art of aircraft design by making it possible to determine the influence of fine structural details on aircraft performance.
 Research Interests
My research is on scientific computing with application to fluid dynamics, particularly on automatic methods for computing complex flows. This involves difference methods for partial differential equations, their implementation on high-performance computers, adaptive methods, and mesh generation for complex geometry. The work draws heavily on areas of computer science, numerical analysis, and applied mathematics.
