The Graham Wright Award was inaugurated to recognize individuals who have made sustained and significant contributions to the Canadian Mathematical Community and, in particular, the Canadian Mathematical Society. More information on the award and past recipients.
Congratulations to Clemonell Bilayi-Biakana for the best oral presentation at the Probability Section Student Competition during the 2017 Statistical Society of Canada Annual General Meeting in Winnipeg. He presented a paper entitled "Tail Empirical Processes for Stochastic Volatility Models". Clemonell is co-supervised by Gail Ivanoff and Rafal Kulik.
This annual conference, organized entirely by graduate students of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, will take place June 19 and 20, on the University of Ottawa campus. It attracts graduate students in Mathematics from all over Ontario and Quebec, and provides an opportunity for them to showcase their research findings in mathematics.
Congratulations to Jason Bramburger, PhD student in Applied Mathematics (supervisors: Benoit Dionne and Victor Leblanc) who has received a prestigious NSERC Postdoctoral Scholarship. After graduation, he will take his scholarship to Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island to work with Dr. Bjorn Sandstede.
Professor of Number Theory, Damien Roy, was recently named Faculty of Science Researcher of the Year. Professor Roy is a leading number theorist of significant stature in the Canadian Mathematical community. He has made substantial, original and lasting contributions, including progress on conjectures that have stood for decades. His research has taken on an incredible momentum, with stunning breakthroughs on a variety of long-standing problems in just the past few years. Congratulations!
Frithjof Lutscher was awarded a prestigious NSERC’s Discovery Accelerator Supplement (DAS) (2016-19) for his research in mathematical spatial ecology. In his research, Frithjof uses multi-scale models (based on partial differential equations and discrete-time analogues) to explain how the distribution of individuals of a biological population changes as individuals navigate through environments with varying resource abundance. He recently pioneered the analysis of Turing pattern formation in heterogeneous environments.
