EducationEdit

Fauci was born in Brooklyn, New York.[4] She did her undergraduate studies at Pace University, where she was encouraged to continue in mathematics by her mentor there, Michael Bernkopf.[5] After earning a B.S. in mathematics in 1981,[6] she went on to graduate studies at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences of New York University, completing a master's degree in 1984 and her doctorate in 1986, under the supervision of Charles S. Peskin.[6][7]

CareerEdit

Fauci has been at Tulane University since 1986.[4][6] IN 2017 she was elected president of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).[3]

RecognitionEdit

In 2012 Fauci became a fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics "for contributions to computational biofluid dynamics and applications."[8] In 2016 she was selected as the annual Sonia Kovalevsky Lecturer by the Association for Women in Mathematics.[9] In 2018, she because a Fellow of the American Physical Society.[10]

In 2019 Fauci was elected fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science[11] (AAAS). She was elected as a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society in the 2020 Class, for "contributions to computational fluid dynamics and applications, and for service to the applied mathematical community".[12]
