ISBA Awards Dr. Nan Lin and Qing Li
The International Society for Bayesian Analysis has awarded Dr. Nan Lin and former Ph.D. student Qing Li for their research on the Bayesian Elastic Net.
Professor John McCarthy Wins Award
Mathematics Professor and Chair John McCarthy received the G. de B. Robinson Award in December along with University of California Professor Jim Agler.
Professor Jose Figueroa-Lopez Receives NSF Grant
Professor Jose Figueroa-Lopez receives an NSF Grant for research on Optimal and Adaptive Nonparametric Methods for High-Frequency Data.
Professor Rachel Roberts Receives an NSF Grant for Collaborative Research on Taut Foliations and Contact Topology
Contact and symplectic topology are branches of mathematics that are motivated by Physics, specifically by classical mechanics and thermodynamics. This National Science Foundation funded project seeks to extend the application of physical phenomena to the study of three-dimensional topology.
John Shareshian receives NSF Grant
John Shareshian studies problems in combinatorics that arise in or have consequences for other fields of mathematics. There are close connections between combinatorics and other fields of mathematics in which non-discrete objects are studied, including topology and geometry. The work of Shareshian involves the close study of such connections, with the aim of solving problems about both discrete and non-discrete structures.
National Science Foundation (NSF) Grant for Math Department's John McCarthy
John McCarthy has received a five-year grant from the National Science Foundation to study Operator Theory and Applications. He will study problems in operator theory, function theory, and in non-commutative functions.
Holmes receives NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship
Irina Holmes, currently a Hale Postdoctoral Fellow at Georgia Tech, received an NSF postdoctoral fellowship for her work in Harmonic Analysis. She will spend 2016-2018 at Washington University, working with sponsoring scientist Brett Wick.
Pascoe receives NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship
James E. Pascoe, William Chauvenet Lecturer at Washington University, received an NSF postodoctoral fellowship for his work in Operator Theory and several complex variables. He will be a Fellow for 2016-2019. His research specialty is in non-commutative function theory, and he will work with sponsoring scientist John McCarthy.
