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.
For the 10th consecutive year, Joseph Khoury, a professor from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, joins the national election committee for the Prime Minister's awards for Teaching Excellence. The Prime Minister's Awards for Teaching Excellence have honoured exceptional elementary and secondary school teachers in all disciplines since 1993, with almost 1,500 teachers honoured to date. Recipients are honoured for their remarkable achievements in education and for their commitment to preparing their students for a digital and innovation-based economy.
