U professor and chair named Fellow of American Mathematical Society


Davar Khoshnevisan, professor and chair of the Department of Mathematics, has been named a member of the 2020 Class of Fellows of the American Mathematical Society (AMS). The Society recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics.

“I’m pleased to see my contributions to mathematics recognized and join my colleagues in our department who are also AMS Fellows,” said Khoshnevisan. He joins thirteen other AMS fellows in the U’s Department of Mathematics. “This is as much a statement about my work as it is about the terrific intellectual environment within the department,” he said. “It is a big honor to be a part of our program at the U and to help advance our field. The American Mathematical Society plays a crucial role in the development of mathematics worldwide. I am proud that my colleagues and I contribute to this important endeavor.”
