Green Family Makes Second Gift to Lectureship Endowment
Mark L. Green and Kathryn Kert Green have made a generous $75,000 gift that will be matched by the Dean of Physical Sciences, to augment the existing Green Family Lectureship Endowment. “This is a wonderful lecture series, and we could not be happier with how it has worked out,” Green says. Since 2012, the endowment has supported highly distinguished lectures at IPAM, including Walter Kohn, Wendelin Werner, Avi Wigderson, Andrew W. Lo, Ingrid Daubechies, and Edward Witten. This gift will enable IPAM to host two lecture series per year. The 2018 Green Family Lecturers will be Fields Medalist Vaughan Jones and Facebook’s AI expert Yann LeCun. Mark Green is a co-founder and former director of IPAM.
