Anne Greenbaum works in the area of numerical analysis, especially numerical linear algebra, matrix theory and its applications. She is the author of the book Iterative Methods for Solving Linear Systems, published by SIAM, and the coauthor (with Tim Chartier) of the undergraduate textbook Numerical Methods: Design, Analysis, and Computer Implementation of Algorithms, published by Princeton University Press. She received her Bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan in 1974 and her PhD from the University of California at Berkeley in 1981. She worked as a mathematician at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory from 1974--1986, then joined the Courant Institute at New York University, where she was a Research Professor from 1986--1997. She is now a Professor in the Applied Mathematics Department at the University of Washington. Awards include the B. Bolzano Honorary Medal for Merit in the Mathematical Sciences, awarded in 1997 by the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, and the SIAM Activity Group on Linear Algebra award for Outstanding Paper in Applicable Linear Algebra during 1991--1993. Aside from mathematics, her interests include tennis and hiking.
