Françoise Tisseur is a numerical analyst and Professor of Numerical Analysis[1][7] at the School of Mathematics, University of Manchester, UK. She works in numerical linear algebra and in particular on nonlinear eigenvalue problems and structured matrix problems, including the development of algorithms and software.[1][8]

She is a graduate of the University of St-Etienne, France, from where she gained her Maitrise (Mathematical Engineering) in 1993, Diplome d’Etude Approfondie in 1994, and PhD (Numerical Analysis) in 1997.

She has contributed software to LAPACK, ScaLAPACK, and the MATLAB distribution.

Tisseur is a member of the editorial boards of the SIAM Journal on Matrix Analysis and Applications, the IMA Journal of Numerical Analysis and the Electronic Journal of Linear Algebra.

Awards and honours[edit]

Tisseur was awarded the 2010 Whitehead Prize by the London Mathematical Society for her research achievements in numerical linear algebra, including polynomial eigenvalue and structured matrix problems.[2] She was awarded the 2011-2012 Adams Prize of the University of Cambridge for her work on polynomial eigenvalue problems[3] and holds a Royal Society Walfson Research Merit Award in 2014-2019.[4] She will deliver the Olga Taussky-Tood Lecture at the International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics in Valencia, Spain, in 2019.[5]

Tisseur became a Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics in 2016 "for contributions to numerical linear algebra, especially numerical methods for eigenvalue problems".[9] She held an EPSRC Leadership Fellowship in 2011-2016[10], and is a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.
