Kimberley Hadaway
Ph.D. candidate
Hadaway received a prestigious National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowship, providing three years of support for her graduate studies in graph theory. Her work focuses on understanding how certain properties of graphs change with the addition or deletion of edges. 
David Herzog
associate professor of mathematics
Herzog received a threeyear grant from the National Science Foundation titled “Degenerate diffusions in finite and infinite dimensions: smoothing and convergence.”

Joey Iverson
assistant professor of mathematics
Iverson received a threeyear grant jointly funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency titled “Principled machine learning and packing subspaces for improved spatiotemporal data processing.”

Bernard Lidický

assistant professor of mathematics
Slutsky received a threeyear grant from the National Science Foundation titled “Orbit Equivalences in Borel Dynamics.”

Eric Weber
professor and chair of the department of mathematics
Weber received a threeyear grant jointly funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency titled “Quantifying Human Mobility using Topological and TimeFrequency Analysis.” This award is a collaboration with Assistant Professor of Sociology Shannon Harper.

Ruoyu Wu
assistant professor of mathematics
Wu received a threeyear grant from the National Science Foundation titled “Scaling limits of queueing systems on graphs.”

Ryan Martin
Scott Hanna Professor
Martin is the recipient of the MTA Distinguished Guest Fellowship at the Renyi Institute of Mathematics in Budapest, Hungary. Funded by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
About the MTA Distinguished Guest Fellowship
The MTA Distinguished Guest Fellowship at the Renyi Institute of Mathematics in Budapest, Hungary is funded by the Hungarian Academy of
Sciences.
This prestigious award has been bestowed upon Martin to collaborate with internationally renowned mathematicians in the world’s premiere mathematical research institute. It is the most prestigious visitation fellowship that the Hungarian Academy of Sciences provides. It is impossible to participate as a distinguished visitor without visiting the Rényi Institute itself.
As part of the visit, Martin plans to bring his two Ph.D. students, Enrique Gomez Leos and Nick Veldt, for a 34 week visit each and a postdoc for a 12 week visit.
As with his prior Fulbright, Martin expects a flurry of research activity to result from the visit as well as providing him with a well of techniques and avenues of research with which to train decades of students to come.
