Awards: Andy Bernoff and I have won the 2013 Outstanding Paper Prize from the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) for some of our joint work. This prize is given for outstanding papers published in SIAM journals during the three years prior to the year of the award. Our same paper also won a SIAM/SIGEST award. This means that the work will reappear as the SIGEST article in SIAM Review, the society's flagship journal. The purpose of SIGEST is to make the over 10,000 readers of SIAM Review aware of exceptional papers published in SIAM's specialized journals. Our article was selected “for the importance of its contributions and topic, its clear writing style, and its accessibility.”
Press: The Associated Colleges of the Midwest wrote a nice story about my online applied calculus course.
Award: I've been named a Fellow of the Kavli Frontiers program of the National Academy of Sciences.
NSF Grant: I am supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation’s Research at Undergraduate Institutions (RUI) program, “Pattern-forming dynamical systems in theory and experiment,” DMS-1009633. This three-year, $250k award will support at least twelve undergraduate researchers, many of whom will work at the interface of theoretical applied mathematics and experiment.
