This September at the NSERC / Pratt & Whitney Canada Chair for Women in Science and Engineering for Ontario - Chaire CRSNG / Pratt & Whitney Canada pour les femmes en sciences et génie pour l’Ontario, we are putting a spotlight on Women in Math in Ontario by featuring the stories of over twenty amazing women. These features show the invaluable work being done by women in math and offer readers an inside look and advice from these motivating women.
CAIMS*SCMAI is happy to announce that the recipient of the 2013 CAIMS*SCMAI Cecil Graham Doctoral Dissertation Award is Dr Frances Mackay of the University of Western Ontario. Her thesis titled: "Hybrid lattice Boltzmann - molecular dynamics simulations with both simple and complex fluids", was completed under the supervision of Professor Colin Denniston in the Department of Applied Mathematics at Western. The dissertation addresses the problem of modelling colloidal structures in complex fluids and, in particular, liquid crystals.
CAIMS and PIMS are pleased to announce that Prof. Geoff Wild of the University of Western Ontario has been awarded the 2014 CAIMS/PIMS Early Career Award in Applied Mathematics. Prof. Wild obtained his PhD in 2004 from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Queen's University. Since 2004 he has held post-doctoral positions at both Queen's University and the University of Western Ontario. Dr. Wild joined the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Western Ontario in 2008 as an Assistant Professor.
