2012-2013 Student Awards: Tripp, Fortunato, De La Torre
Daniel Fortunato '13 received the department's 2013 Ralph S. Kaye Memorial Prize for excellence in mathematics and well-roundedness in his activities, and Zachary Tripp '16 was the recipient of the 2013 Guterman award for highest academic achievement by a first-year student. Jessica de la Torre was honored with the Maxine Newberg Gordon Book Prize, for a mathematics major who has demonstrated a love of reading, literature, and poetry. In addition, numerous math and applied math majors and minors were decorated with university-wide awards, including Gregory Bodwin, Benjamin Glass, Samuel Haney, Samuel (Benji) Hansen, Eric Kernfield, Joshua Levy, Alek Razdan, Eriene-Heidi Sidhom, Anders Simpson-Wolf, Gabriel Siu, Scott Staniewicz, and Min Zhong.

Duchin receives CAREER award
Assistant Professor Moon Duchin was chosen by the National Science Foundation as the recipient of one of its CAREER awards, which will be held from 2013-2018. These are described by NSF as "the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations." Duchin's research area includes asymptotic geometry of groups and geometric topology of surfaces, and her project is entitled "Finer Coarse Geometry."

Faculty active in visiting roles
Professor Boris Hasselblatt held the Jean Morlet Chair in Mathematics at Aix-Marseille University in France from November 2013 to April 2014, cosponsored by several French governmental agencies. During his time in France, Hasselblatt collaborated on a variety of projects in geometry and dynamics. Assistant Professor James Adler was a visiting scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Labs for part of the 2013-14 school year, with many additional visits nationally and internationally to work on projects in magnetohydrodynamics and related areas. Associate Professor Genevieve Walsh spent Fall 2013 at the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) in Providence, RI as one of the organizers of the semester program in Low-Dimensional Topology, Geometry, and Dynamics. Assistant Professor Moon Duchin was a research member of the Random Walks and Asymptotic Geometry of Groups program at the Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris in Spring 2014.
