Professor Maria Gordina has been awarded the prestigious Simons Fellowship, one of only forty mathematicians in North America to receive the award this year. The Fellowship enables research leaves by providing time away from classroom teaching and academic administration. Professor Gordina will use the award to work on several projects while visiting her collaborators in the US and in Europe. In particular, she will combine a stay at Bielefeld University in Germany with a trip to the Oberwolfach Research Institute for Mathematics to attend the workshop Heat Kernels, Stochastic Processes and Functional Inequalities, of which she is a co-organizer. Professor Gordina’s projects during 2015-2016 will include work on on singular stochastic differential equations and structure theory of the energy representation of path groups with values in compact groups.
