Posted on Wednesday, November 4, 2015

Mayer Alvo, a professor of Statistics, was named a Fellow of the Fields Institute for the Mathematical Sciences  on June 25, 2015,  in recognition of having “contributed in a significant way to activities at the Fields Institute and within the Canadian mathematical community.”  Among many other contributions, Mayer Alvo was the driving force which led to the University of Ottawa becoming a Principal Sponsoring University of the Fields Institute in 2002, a sponsorship which directly benefits our department, through the funding of postdoctoral fellows and of several research workshops and conferences each year.
