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!
