To quote from Dr. Lenhart’s nomination announcement:
Suzanne M. Lenhart of the University of Tennessee is being recognized for her research in optimal control with biological and physical applications and her significant contributions to advance undergraduate research. In addition to optimal control, she studies partial differential equations and disease, population, environmental and natural resource models. Dr. Lenhart has spent many years encouraging women and underrepresented minorities to pursue mathematics and related fields. She was awarded the AWM-SIAM Sonia Kovalevsky Lectureship at SIAM’s annual meeting last year in acknowledgment of her contributions. She is a past member of the SIAM Board of Trustees and serves on the education committees of AWM and SIAM.”
