New members of the US National Academy of Sciences in MathSciNet

National Academy of Sciences logo
The United States National Academy of Sciences has announced the newest group of members.  Of the 120 newly-elected members, 59 of them are women, the most elected in a single year.  In this post, I’ve gathered the new members whom I could find in MathSciNet, and added links to their author profiles.

Congratulations new academicians!
