Clint DawsonASE/EM Professor Clint Dawson has been selected to receive a prize from the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics’ Activity Group on Geosciences (SIAG/GS) this summer.

Dawson, the leader of Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES) Computational Hydraulics Group, will be awarded the SIAG career prize.

The prize recognizes “broad and distinguished contributions” in the field of geosciences, according to SIAG/GS. The career prize is awarded to long-term research achievements.

The award honors Dawson’s "pioneering contributions to the development and rigorous analysis
of computational methods for surface and subsurface flow and transport” as well as his leadership in the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) geoscience community.

Dawson will accept his award and give a lecture on his work at the 2013 SIAM Conference on Mathematical and Computational Issues in Geosciences in Padua, Italy this June.

Dawson’s work includes modeling storm surges, rainfall-induced flooding, ground water systems and flow in porous media, to name a few.
