Annie A. M. Cuyt (b. 1956 in Elisabethstad, Belgian Congo) is a full professor at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Antwerp. She received her Doctorate in Science in 1982 from the same university, summa cum laude and with the felicitations of the jury. Subsequently she was a Research fellow with the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (Germany), she obtained the Habilitation (1986) and became author or co-author of several books, including Handbook of Continued Fractions for Special Functions. Her main research interest is in the area of numerical approximation theory and its applications to a diversity of problems in scientific computing. As a consequence her expertise spans a wide range of activities from pure abstract mathematics to computer arithmetic and different engineering applications. A lot of her research has been devoted to rational approximations, in one as well as in many variables, and sparse interpolation. For many years she served on the Expert committees of the Flemish FWO (Belgium) and the Dutch NWO (The Netherlands). She directs the HPC core facility of the University of Antwerp and is a member of the Flemish HPC steering committee. In 2013 she was elected a life-time member of the Flemish Royal Society of the Sciences and Arts.

In November 2015, Cuyt was named a Senior Associate Editor of the DLMF.
