Prof. Anna-Karin Tornberg
Anna-Karin Tornberg is a professor in Numerical Analysis at KTH since 2012. Her research concerns the development of numerical methods for the solution of PDEs. One specific focus is on boundary integral methods for fluid flows involving particles and drops. She was recently (2014) awarded the Göran Gustafsson prize in Mathematics. She is an elected member both of the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences (KVA) (since 2010)and of the Swedish Royal Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA) (since 2015). Earlier awards include the selection as an Alfred P. Sloan research fellow (2006) while Prof. Tornberg was part of the faculty at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences (New York University) as well as the Leslie Fox First Prize in Numerical Analysis (2000).
Prof. Tornberg has been an associate editor for Journal of Computational Physics for eight years. She has served on several grant evaluation panels and PhD committees both nationally and internationally. In 2014 she was a member of the organizing committee for the SIAM (Society of Applied and Industrial Mathematics) annual meeting in Chicago and in 2017 for the SIAM CSE meeting in Atlanta.
