Prof. Annalisa Buffa

Annalisa Buffa is a professor of Mathematics at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) since 2016. Before this, she has been the research director and director of the Instituto di Matematica Applicata e Tecnologie informatiche of the Italian National Research Council (CNR). Annalisa Buffa is a corresponding member of the Academia dei Lincei, associé etranger of the French Academy of Sciences,  member of Accademia Europeae and of the European Academy of Sciences. She is a leading expert in the numerical analysis of partial differential equations (PDEs). Her interests span from geometric design, computational mechanics, and computational electromagnetics to approximation theory, and functional analysis for PDEs. She received an ERC Starting grant in 2008, an ERC Advanced grant in 2016, and she is a recipient of the Collatz prize from the ICIAM (2015). She has been a plenary speaker at several venues, including the ECCOMAS conference in 2022, the centennial of the IMU in 2021, AIMS Conference on Dynamical Systems, Differential Equations and Applications in 2018, the International Congress of Mathematicians (section 15, 2014), the ICIAM in 2015, the GAMM conference and the FoCM conference in 2014. Annalisa Buffa is a highly cited researcher, according to ISI (2019).
