IPAM’s Science Advisory Board Members Receive the 2020 Princess of Asturias
IPAM is proud to announce that Emmanuel Candès and Terence Tao, two of our Science Advisory Board members, have been awarded the 2020 Princess of Asturias Award for Technical and Scientific Research. This Award highlights the social contribution of mathematics and its importance as a cross-cutting element in all branches of science. The Jury unanimously decided to bestow the 2020 award to Yves Meyer, Ingrid Daubechies, Terence Tao, and Emmanuel Candès for their immeasurable, ground-breaking contributions to mathematical theories and techniques for data processing, which have extraordinarily expanded our sensorial capabilities of observation and which constitute the foundations and backbone of the modern digital age.
Candès, the Barnum-Simon Professor of Mathematics and Statistics and a Professor of Electrical Engineering and Co-Director of the Data Science Institute at Stanford University, has participated in several of IPAM’s events, including being a Core Participant and organizer for IPAM’s 2018 long program, Science at Extreme Scales: Where Big Data Meets Large-Scale Computing.
Tao, a Professor at the Department of Mathematics at UCLA, has also participated in several IPAM events, including being a Core Participant and an organizer for IPAM’s 2018 long program, Quantitative Linear Algebra.
IPAM would also like to extend its congratulations to Ingrid Daubechies, the James B. Duke Chair at Duke University, who has participated in several of IPAM’s events, including organizing and speaking at IPAMS’s 2013 Workshop, Adaptive Data Analysis and Sparsity.
Congratulations for this enormous achievement!
