Lillian Pierce wins the AWM-Sadosky Research Prize in Analysis

The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) will award the AWM-Sadosky Research Prize in Analysis to Lillian Pierce in January 2018. Lillian Pierce is a former Bonn Junior Fellow at the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (HCM) and now Assistant Professor at Duke University. Recently, she has been appointed as Bonn Research Fellow, a new program at the HCM.

Established in 2012, the AWM-Sadosky Research Prize recognizes exceptional research in analysis by a woman early in her career. In 2018, it will be awarded to Lillian Pierce in recognition of her outstanding contributions to harmonic analysis and analytic number theory. Her research spans and connects a broad spectrum of problems ranging from character sums in number theory to singular integral operators in Euclidean spaces. She has made far-reaching contributions to the study of discrete analogs of harmonic-analytic integral operators, taking inspiration in classical Fourier analysis, but drawing also on methods from analytic number theory such as the circle method and Diophantine approximation.

Bonn Research Fellows

A new program at the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics gives former members the opportunity to intensify earlier cooperation with the HCM. The Bonn Research Fellow program is aimed at selected former HCM Bonn Junior Fellows and Advanced Researchers (W2) of the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics who have moved to a foreign research institution after their tenure in Bonn. Bonn Research Fellows are appointed by the HCM Board of Directors for a duration of five years. A re-appointment is possible. During this time, the Bonn Research Fellows spend some weeks every year in Bonn and participate in the teaching activities of Bonn Mathematics.
