Andrea Bertozzi is Professor of Mathematics at UCLA and currently serves as Director of the Program in Computational and Applied Mathematics. Since 2012 she is the Betsy Wood Knapp Chair for Innovation and Creativity at UCLA. From 1995–2004 she was on the faculty of Duke University, most recently as Professor of Mathematics and Physics. During 1995–96 she was Maria Goeppert-Mayer Distinguished Scholar at Argonne National Laboratory. From 1991–95 she was a Dickson Instructor at the University of Chicago. She received AB, MA, and PhD degrees in Mathematics from Princeton University. Her current research interests include image in painting, image segmentation, cooperative control of robotic vehicles, swarming, crime modeling, and fluid interfaces.

Prof. Bertozzi has served as a plenary/distinguished lecturer for both SIAM and AMS and is associate editor for the SIAM journals Multiscale Modelling and Simulation and SIAM Journal on Mathematical Analysis. She also serves on the editorial boards for Interfaces and Free Boundaries, Nonlinearity, Applied Mathematics Research eXpress, Advances in Differential Equations, Mathematical Models and Methods in the Applied Sciences, Communications in the Mathematical Sciences, Applied Mathematics Letters, and the Journal of Nonlinear Science. Her past honors include a Sloan Foundation Research Fellowship and the Presidential Career Award for Scientists and Engineers from the Office of Naval Research. She is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. In addition to serving on the MSRI board, she is Chair of the Science Board for the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics at Brown University and serves on the board for the Banff International Research Station.
