Professor Lise-Marie Imbert-Gerard is Associate Professor of Mathematics at the University of Arizona. Before that she was an Assistant Professor at the University of Maryland, where she was also member of the Center for Scientific Computation and Mathematical Modeling and member of the Institute for Physical Science and Technology.

She received her Ph.D. at Universite Pierre et Marie Curie (2013) in Mathematics from the Laboratoire Jacques-Louis Lions. She then became a post-doctoral researcher and a Courant Instructor at the Courant Institute, New York University, where she also received a Cathleen Morawetz Post-doctoral fellowship. In 2017 she received a second prize of the 18th IMA Leslie Fox Prize in Numerical Analysis.

Early on she got interested in applications related to plasma physics, in particular to radio-frequency wave propagation in plasmas. As an applied mathematician her research focuses on numerical methods for time-harmonic wave propagation in inhomogenous media, based on partial differential equations and integral equations, analysis of wave resonances, and numerical methods for partial differential equations on surfaces of genus one.
