We are thrilled to announce that our Masters student, David Winters, has secured second place among the recipients of the Terrill Graduate Fellowship. The Phi Sigma Kappa Foundation sponsors this scholarship competition and will supplement David’s student fellowship that he will receive from Georgia Tech. David will be continuing his Ph.D. studies in mathematics at Georgia Tech.
David recently graduated from the University of Virginia, where he earned a Master’s degree in Mathematics. His thesis, “4-dimensional 2-handlebodies and topological invariants,” was completed and successfully defended under the guidance of You Qi.
We extend our heartfelt congratulations to David on this achievement and wish him every success as he continues his academic journey.
Our graduating senior undergrad, Zac Carlini, has won an NSF Graduate Fellowship and will be attending Yale graduate school in mathematics. Additionally, Zac has been awarded the McShane Prize this year.
Zac’s DMP thesis consists of two research papers, one on i-quantum groups and another on Kazhdan-Lusztig bases for Hecke algebra modules. His work on i-quantum groups provides a new formulation and short conceptual proof to the Serre relations and Serre-Lusztig relations.
We are incredibly proud of Zac’s achievements and look forward to following his continued success at Yale. Congratulations, Zac!
