David Anderson has been granted one of this year's Vilas Associates award! Congratulations David! Well done and very well deserved.
Jordan Ellenberg is the recipient of the 2016 Euler Book Prize for an outstanding book in mathematics: How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking.
Melanie Matchett Wood has been awarded a Packard Fellowship 2015! This is a highly prestigious and extremely competitive award given to all sciences, math and engineering. To put it in context, only 28 awards have gone to mathematicians since its beginning 25 years ago, and only twice before to someone in our department (16 to UW-Madison).
This is a tremendous achievement, congratulations Melanie! It is fantastic and very well deserved!
