Agnès Beaudry is named a fellow of the American Mathematical Society, the sixth CU Boulder faculty member to garner this distinction
Agnès Beaudry, an associate professor of mathematics at the University of Colorado Boulder, is one of 40 mathematical scientists from around the world who have been named fellows of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) for 2024, the society announced this month.
AMS members designated as fellows have made outstanding contributions to the “creation, exposition, advancement, communication and utilization of mathematics.” The society said it is pleased to honor the 2024 Class of Fellows, who are being recognized by their peers for their contributions to the field.
“It is my pleasure to congratulate and welcome the new class of AMS Fellows, honored for their outstanding contributions to the mathematical sciences and to our profession,” said AMS President Bryna Kra. “This year's class was selected from a large and excellent pool of candidates, highlighting the many ways in which our profession is advanced, and I look forward to working with them in service to our community.”
Beudry said she was grateful: “I’m incredibly honored to have been selected for the new class of AMS Fellows. I am extremely thankful to those who nominated me, and also to all of the mentors, collaborators and other amazing individuals I have the chance to work with as a mathematician.”
Beaudry is an algebraic topologist and a stable homotopy theorist. “Algebraic topology studies geometric objects by associating to them algebraic data called invariants. These help us understand and detect features of the geometric objects,” she explained.
Beaudry studies chromatic homotopy theory and its interactions with equivariant homotopy theory. She also works with condensed-matter physicists to apply tools from algebraic topology to the study of phases of matter.
Beaudry joined the CU Boulder faculty in 2016 and became an associate professor in 2022. She holds a PhD in mathematics from Northwestern University and a BA, with honors, in mathematics from McGill University.
Sebastian Casalaina-Martin, professor and chair of the CU Boulder Department of Mathematics, said the university is lucky to have her. "Being named an AMS fellow is a terrific honor, marking Dr. Beaudry's profound impact on the field, and I am delighted to have this opportunity to celebrate Dr. Beaudry being recognized in this way."
The American Mathematical Society is dedicated to advancing research and connecting the diverse global mathematical community through publications, meetings and conferences, MathSciNet, professional services, advocacy and awareness programs.
Beaudry is the sixth faculty member at CU Boulder to be named an AMS fellow.
