Eileen Martin wins SIAM Early Career Prize
Assistant professor holds joint appointments in Geophysics and Applied Mathematics and Statistics
Eileen Martin, assistant professor at Colorado School of Mines, has been awarded the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) Activity Group on Geosciences Early Career Prize.
The prize, given every two years, recognizes an early career researcher in the field of geosciences for distinguished contributions to the field in the three years preceding the award year.
Martin, who joined Mines in 2022, holds joint appointments in the Department of Geophysics and the Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics. Her research focuses on computational science to understand Earth's subsurface and how we interact with it, including near-surface, engineering, environmental and urban geophysics, analysis of large sensor networks, fiber-optic sensing, signal processing, imaging, and inverse problems, and data-intensive high performance computing.
Martin holds a PhD in computational and mathematical engineering and a MS in geophysics, both from Stanford, and a BS in math and computational physics from the University of Texas at Austin. She received an NSF CAREER Award in 2021 to develop new algorithms for more efficiently analyzing large-scale continuously recorded seismic data.
Martin received the prize at the SIAM Conference on Mathematical and Computational Issues in the Geosciences (GS23) on June 21 in Bergen, Norway.
