We are pleased to announce that Eitan Tadmor was invited to deliver the 2022 Gibbs lecture at the next joint math meeting of the American Mathematical Society http://www.ams.org/meetings/lectures/meet-gibbs-lect
Eitan joins three former Gibbs lecturers from UMD (all members of IPST): Burgers (1963), Montroll (1987), and Fisher (1992). Other notable speakers include many of the who's who in Math and Science (including Eric Lander - the founder of the Broad Institute and Biden’s nominee for Science Advisor, Fields Medalists, and Nobel Laureates).
Congratulations Eitan!!
