Faculty Named 2018 American Mathematical Society Fellows

Nov 06, 2017
LAS is excited to announce that three faculty members of the Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science (MSCS) department have been honored as 2018 Fellows of the American Mathematical Society (AMS). Aldridge (Pete) Bousfield was honored for his contributions to homotopy theory and for exposition; Izzet Coskun for contributions to algebraic geometry, and for mentoring; and William A. Howard for contributions to proof theory and the constructive foundations of mathematics. Twenty-one current and emeritus members of the MSCS department are Fellows of the AMS. A full list is available online.

The Fellows of the AMS is a special designation that recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics. Among the goals of the program are to create an enlarged class of mathematicians recognized by their peers as distinguished because of their contributions to the profession, and to honor excellence. This year, 63 mathematical scientists from around the world have been named Fellows of the AMS.

Please join me in congratulating our faculty! For more information about the AMS fellowship, please visit their web site.
