Sara Maloni receives CAREER award by NSF

The National Science Fundation has awarded Assistant Professor Sara Maloni with Early Career Development (CAREER) award. The five-year, $450,000 CAREER award is “the highest distinction that the NSF can provide to junior researchers in the mathematical sciences,” according to the organization’s website. This is an honor awarded to only 3 early-career scientists in Topology this year and around 40 scientists in the whole Mathematical Sciences. Sara Maloni works at the intersection of geometry and low-dimensional topology. She studies geometric structures and the way they change when one perturbs the space on which they are constructed.

Math Department awarded a Research Training Group grant

The Topology and Geometry group in the Department of Mathematics is happy to announce that they are the recipient of a five year $2.5 million Research Training Group grant from the National Science Foundation. The NSF RTG program is aimed at strengthening the nation’s scientific competitiveness by increasing the number of well-prepared U.S. residents who pursue careers in the mathematical sciences. Nationally, roughly 5 RTG grants are awarded each year by the NSF to support efforts to improve research training by involving undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral associates, and faculty members in structured research groups centered on a common research theme.
