Mathematician Receives Prestigious Award

Assistant professor named an AMS Fellow

Assistant Professor of Mathematics Kate Juschenko has been awarded the prestigious American Mathematical Society Centennial Fellowship for the 2014-2015 academic year.

The fellowship is presented annually to outstanding mathematicians who have held the doctoral degree for between three and  12 years. The primary selection criterion is excellence in research achievement. The stipend for the 2014-2015 Centennial Fellowship is $85,000, plus an expense allowance of $8,500. Fellows also receive a complimentary one-year AMS membership.

Kate Juschenko was born in Kiev, Ukraine. She attended Kiev National University for her bachelor's degree and completed her Ph.D. at Texas A&M University in 2011 under the direction of Gilles Pisier. She was an assistant professor at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, and a postdoctoral fellow at EPFL, Lausanne. In 2013, she was appointed as assistant professor at Northwestern University.

Juschenko's research began in operator theory, a branch of mathematics that reaches into both pure and applied areas of the field and that has grown enormously since the middle of the 20th century. Subsequent research by Juschenko is in aspects of group theory, an older but still thriving branch of mathematics that, broadly speaking, investigates symmetry patterns.
