  • Congratulations to Yunqing Tang who has been awarded the Inaugural AWM Dissertation Prize by the Association for Women in Mathematics. From the citation: "Yunqing's thesis touches two of the most difficult problems in arithmetic geometry: the famous Grothendieck-Katz p-curvature conjecture which goes back over 30 years, and the Ogus crystalline Mumford-Tate conjecture. Yunqing made very important progress on both problems." AWM newsletter.
  • Congratulations to Hannah Larson, Harvard Undergraduate, who was recently awarded the Alice T. Schafer Prize. The prize will be awarded at the AMS meeting in January. Congratulations!
