Kudos to the winners and honorable mention of the 2021 AMS-MAA-SIAM Frank and Brennie Morgan Prize for Outstanding Research in Mathematics by an Undergraduate Student! Ashwin Sah and Noah Kravitz are 2019 Goldwater Scholars! Congratulations and best wishes!
Ashwin Sah and Mehtaab Sawhney, both currently graduate mathematics students at MIT, will receive the 2021 AMS-MAA-SIAM Frank and Brennie Morgan Prize for Outstanding Research in Mathematics by an Undergraduate Student. Previously, they received Honorable Mention for the Morgan Prize for their joint work with David Stoner.
The prize committee notes, “Working alongside one another, Sah and Sawhney settled longstanding conjectures and improved results by established mathematicians. The research of Sah and Sawhney is both deep and broad, tackling questions at the very forefront of current research, yet extending across the entire gamut of modern combinatorics, with significant contributions to extremal graph theory, graph limits, additive combinatorics, Ramsey theory, algebraic combinatorics, combinatorial geometry, random graphs and random matrix theory. They have demonstrated a significant amount of ingenuity, originality and technical ability, resulting in a research record, which is extremely rare for undergraduate students.”
Noah Kravitz, doctoral student at Princeton, will receive Honorable Mention for his undergraduate research at Yale University. Read more https://buff.ly/2TxIqFM
