Daniel Larremore receiving awardLast week, Applied Mathematics doctoral alumnus and Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science Daniel Larremore received the 2023 Erdős–Rényi Prize of the Network Science Society. Each year at the International Conference on Network Science, an early-career researcher is given the prize to highlight extraordinary work in network science, specifically towards interdisciplinary progress of the field.

Specifically, Dr. Larremore received this prize “For socially impactful contributions to network models of human-disease dynamics, with applications to malaria and the COVID-19 pandemic, and for foundational research in the theoretical and practical use of algorithms for community detection.” Part of the prize includes giving a lecture at the NetSci International School and Conference on Network Science.

The Department of Applied Mathematics congratulates Dr. Larremore on this momentous achievement!
