Education and careerEdit
Pipher is currently the Elisha Benjamin Andrews Professor of Mathematics at Brown University. She received a B.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1979 and a Ph.D. from UCLA in 1985 under the direction of John B. Garnett. She taught at the University of Chicago (1985–1990) before taking a position at Brown in 1990, where she served as chair of the Mathematics Department from 2005 to 2008.
In 2012 she became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society. In 2017, she was selected as a fellow of the Association for Women in Mathematics in the inaugural class. In 2019 she was named a SIAM Fellow "for her profound contributions in analysis and partial differential equations, groundbreaking work in public key cryptography, and outstanding scientific leadership".
n 2014 Pipher was a Mathematical Association of America Invited Lecturer at the Joint Mathematics Meetings, speaking on The Mathematics of Lattice-based Cryptography The Association for Women in Mathematics named her as their Noether Lecturer for 2018.
