The award for young mathematicians recognized work by De Simoi (Ph.D. ’09, mathematics) in dynamical systems.

Jacopo De Simoi (Ph.D. ’09, mathematics) was awarded the 2020 Coxeter-James Prize by the Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS) for his work in dynamical systems. The prize, which was first awarded in 1978, recognizes young mathematicians who have made outstanding contributions to mathematical research. The University of Toronto assistant professor of mathematics will receive his award and present a prize lecture during the CMS Winter Meeting in Montreal in December 2020.

UMD was one of only three U.S. public universities to place in the top 10 at the prestigious international math competition.

A team of undergraduates from the University of Maryland placed ninth out of 568 teams and earned an honorable mention nod in the 2018 William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition, popularly called “the Putnam.” 

We welcomed ten new members to the math family this fall!
