## Life

Sigal Gottlieb is the daughter and co-author of applied mathematician David Gottlieb.[3][4] She completed her undergraduate, masters and her Ph.D. at Brown University.[1] She defended her Ph.D. thesis in 1998 under the supervision of Chi-Wang Shu; her dissertation was *Convergence to Steady State of Weighted ENO Schemes, Norm Preserving Runge-Kutta Methods and a Modified Conjugate Gradient Method*.[5]

## Research

Gottlieb's interests lie in the numerical simulation of the partial differential equations used in aerodynamics.[6]

She has authored the following books :

*Spectral Methods for Time-Dependent Problems*(with Jan Hesthaven and David Gottlieb, Cambridge Monographs on Applied and Computational Mathematics, 21, Cambridge University Press, 2007)[7]*Strong Stability Preserving Runge–Kutta and Multistep Time Discretizations*(with David Ketcheson and Chi-Wang Shu, World Scientific, 2011)[8]

Gottlieb directs UMass Dartmouth's Center for Scientific Computing & Visualization Research, which is a research center with over 30 faculty, multiple computational clusters, and an international advisory board. She founded the Center in 2013 with a colleague, Gaurav Khanna.

## Recognition

In 2019 Gottlieb was named a SIAM Fellow "for her contribution to strong-stability-preserving time discretizations and other schemes for hyperbolic equations, and for her professional services including those to SIAM and women in mathematics".[9]
