She is one of eight early career professionals to receive the three-year fellowship. According to SIAM’s website, fellows are “selected based on their exemplary achievements; support of diversity, equity, and inclusion in their community; and commitment to industrial and applied mathematics, computational science, and data science.” The fellowship is a joint commitment between SIAM and Mathematically Gifted & Black (MGB) to provide professional activities and career development for early career applied mathematicians, especially those belonging to racial and ethnic groups historically excluded from the mathematical sciences in the United States.

“Being recognized by SIAM in the early stage of my career is an honor,” said Sanjaya. “I am looking forward to expanding my network, interacting with other fellows, and supporting SIAM’s mission to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. I am also excited to find new research collaborators and participate in SIAM’s career development opportunities.”

Sanjaya is thankful for the continued support she has received from her PhD advisor Professor Krzysztof Fidkowski, research collaborators, mentors, colleagues, graduate students, and family members.

Over the course of her fellowship, Sanjaya plans to mentor SIAM student members and improve the visibility of underrepresented experts in applied mathematics, computational science, and aerospace engineering. As a fellow, she will co-organize mini symposiums at the SIAM Annual Meeting and SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering and present her research in a SIAM workshop celebrating diversity.
