21 Mar UW–Madison mathematicians named Simons Fellows
Three professors at the University of Wisconsin–Madison are among the 2019 class of Simons Fellows in Mathematics.
Gheorghe Craciun, Autumn Kent and Andreas Seeger are among the 48 distinguished scientists named to fellowships.
Each year, the Simons Foundation selects as many as 50 fellows conducting research in math and the physical sciences, providing funding for an academic leave from a term to a full year. The support, according to the foundation, is meant to help recipients “focus solely on research for the long periods often necessary for significant advances.”
