Anne Greenbaum works in the area of numerical analysis,
especially numerical linear algebra, matrix theory and its
applications. She is the author of a
book on Iterative Methods for Solving Linear Systems, published
by SIAM, and is nearing completion of an undergraduate textbook
on Numerical Analysis with Tim Chartier. 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.
