### 2017

Tufts mathematics Ph.D. alum **Aaron Brown** breaks decades-old gridlock, the complex Zimmer's conjecture.

Professor **Bruce Boghosian** runs the numbers and shows that without redistribution of wealth, the rich get richer and everyone else gets poorer. Learn about Professor Boghosian and his group's findings on the Mathematics of Inequality.

Tufts mathematics Ph.D. alum **Aaron Brown** breaks decades-old gridlock, the complex Zimmer's conjecture.

Professor **Misha Kilmer** sets a global agenda for the future of biomedical imaging in the SIAM July/August 2017 Newsletter.

Next semester **Genevieve Walsh** will hold the Jean-Morlet Chair at the **Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques** for an outstanding, innovative researcher from a non-French institution working closely with a Local project leader based at *Aix-Marseille Université*. The holders collaborate at an international level and develop strong synergies between laboratories, researchers, doctoral students, both across borders and within the local mathematical sciences community at large. Tufts remains the sole US institution from which an appointment to this chair was made and is one of only two institutions in the world from which two holders have been selected.
