A Stunning Year for Melanie Matchett Wood

Melanie Matchett Wood has had a simply phenomenal year.  

She's received the Vilas Early Career Investigator Award by the Provost, and was awarded the AWM-Microsoft Research Prize in Algebra and Number Theory by the Association for Women in Mathematics in May 2017.  

The Early Career Investigator Award recognizes research and teaching excellence in faculty who are relatively early in their careers, while the AWM-Microsoft Research Prize in Algebra and Number Theory serves to highlight to the community outstanding contributions by women in the field.

She went from Assistant Professor, to Associate Professor to Full Professor in just the last few months.

And in January, she won an NSF Career Award.  

We have grown accustomed to Melanie‚Äôs abundance of awards, but so many celebrations of her excellence is truly special! Congratulations Melanie!! You Rock!
