Undergraduate Award Winners


Former Brin Postdoctoral Fellow Huanchen Bao will receive the 2020 Chevalley Prize in Lie Theory, along with Weiqiang Wang, for their fundamental contributions to the theory of quantum symmetric pairs.

Professor Jacob Bedrossian will receive the inaugural Peter Lax Award at the HYP 2020 meeting. The award is given to a young researcher (10 years within the Ph.D.) and honors Lax’s seminal contributions, which laid the foundations of modern theory and computation in the area of hyperbolic conservation laws. Jacob also received the SIAM Activity Group Prize on Analysis of Partial Differential Equations along with Nader Masmoudi of NYU.

Novikov Postdoctoral Fellow Jakob Hultgren was named outstanding professor/instructor by a 2019 Maryland Women's Soccer student-athlete.

Professor Doron Levy delivered the G. Milton Wing Lectures at the University of Rochester.  The Wing Lectures are dedicated to presenting mathematics of interest to the larger scientific community and to the general public. Levy delivered three talks on Mathematical Oncology.

Professor Dio Margetis was named Distinguished Ordway Visitor and Lecturer by the School of Mathematics at the University of Minnesota.

Senior Lecturer Tim Pilachowski was named outstanding professor/instructor by a 2019 Maryland Women's Lacrosse student-athlete.


Lucia Simonelli (Ph.D. ’16, applied mathematics and statistics, and scientific computation) received the 2019-20 American Mathematical Society Congressional Fellowship and is working in the office of Senator Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island.

Philip Isett (B.S. ’08, mathematics; B.A. ’08, economics) received the 2019 Clay Research Award, together with Tristan Buckmaster of Princeton University and Vlad Vicol of NYU, for the "profound contributions that each of them has made to the analysis of partial differential equations, particularly the Navier-Stokes and Euler equations."
