The Academy Announces Class of 2019
The American Academy of Arts and Sciences has elected over 200 exceptional individuals for their “outstanding achievements in academia, the arts, business, government, and public affairs.” IPAM is especially proud to congratulate our affiliates: Mikhail Lyubich (Stony Brook University), organizer for a 2013 workshop on Dynamics of Groups and Rational Maps; Claire Tomlin (UC Berkeley), Science Advisory Board member from 2009-2015 and speaker and organizer for multiple workshops, including an upcoming 2020 spring long program on High Dimensional Hamilton-Jacobi PDE’s; and Ofer Zeitouni (Weismann Institute of Science), speaker for a 2018 workshop on Random Matrices and Free Probability Theory. This extraordinary honor was founded in 1780 by John Adams, John Hancock, and others to recognize exceptionally accomplished individuals and engage them in advancing the public good. While the diversity in the fields have increased, the founders’ mission has remained steadfast over two centuries later. The 239th class will have an induction ceremony in October 2019, in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
