Jiawang Nie - 14th Feng Kang Prize of Scientific Computing

Professor Jiawang Nie has been awarded the 14th Feng Kang Prize of Scientific Computing for significant contributions to "Polynomial optimization, convex algebraic geometry and tensor computation." A ceremony will be held at the General Assembly of the China Society for Computational Mathematics in Nanjing, China from August 15–19, 2021. 

Haesong Moon, Yiren Wang - 2020-2021 Richard Libby Graduate Research Award

Congratulations to graduate students Haeseong Moon (Advisor: Professor Wenxin Zhou) and Yiren Wang (Advisor: Professor Dimitris Politis) for being awarded the 2020-2021 Richard Libby Graduate Research Award. Richard Libby ('80, MA '82, PhD) received his degrees in mathematics at UC San Diego before starting a successful career in the finance industry. His recent $100,000 contribution to the university exemplifies his passion for using mathematics in concert with finance and business, in particular when it comes to assessing market risk. Half of his unique gift has been awarded to the Department of Mathematics in support of graduate studies and research.
