Our colleague Markus Pflaum received an NSF award as a CoPI jointly with Aurora Clark (PI, Chemistry, Washington State University), Yang Zhang (CoPI, Engineering, University of Illinois), Ravishankar Sundararaman (CoPI, Chemistry, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) and Henry Adams (CoPI, Applied Topology, Colorado State University) for their project "Descriptors of Energy Landscapes via Topological Analysis" (DELTA). The grant is a continuing grant with an initially awarded amount of $846,222.00 for the first year.
- Math Club Talk `Can you hear me now?' by David Grant, Math 350, 5-6 pm, December 4, 2019 [poster]
- Carla Farsi and Judith Packer together with coauthors Elizabeth Gillaspy and Sooran Kang have been selected as winners of the Journal of Mathematical Analysis and Applications' Ames Award. Their paper ‘’Separable representations, KMS states, and wavelets for higher-rank graphs’’ was written while Elizabeth Gillaspy was a postdoc at CU and Sooran Kang (who got her Ph.D. under Packer's direction in 2009) was visiting CU. Congratulations!
- The department would like to welcome our two new Postdocs: Tianyuan Xu received his PhD from the University of Oregon. Before coming to CU, he was a postdoc at Queen’s University (Kingston, Ontario, Canada). He is working in algebraic combinatorics and representation theory.
Yining Zhang received his Ph.D. in 2019 from Indiana University, Bloomington. His research is in the areas of homological algebra and noncommutative geometry.
