Beatrice Pelloni is a mathematician interested in the rigorous study of models of fluid dynamics, in particular the study of equations that model water waves and atmospheric flows and that must obey certain physical constraints. She has presented her work at high-level international meetings, as the Olga Taussky-Todd prize lecturer at the International Congress of Applied and Industrial Mathematics in 2011, and was the Mary Cartwright Lecturer for 2019. After studies in Italy and the US, she worked at Imperial College and the University of Reading before coming to Scotland in 2016 as Head of the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences at Heriot-Watt University.
