Jason Miller and Daniel Wise are the laureates of the second edition of the Poincaré Chair The two laureates of the Poincaré Chair for the academic year 2014/2015
The two laureates of the Poincaré Chair for the academic year 2014/2015 have just been announced. The international selection committee deliberated in favour of Jason Miller and Daniel Wise, who become the laureates of the second edition of the Poincaré Chair.
Jason Peter Miller is a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA. His research interests lie in probability theory and mathematical physics, with a focus on stochastic interface models including random surfaces, the Gaussian free field, Liouville quantum gravity, and the Schramm-Loewner evolution. Most recently, he has been working on the connections between these objects and with the scaling limits of random planar maps.
Daniel Wise is a professor at the Department of Mathematics & Statistics, McGill University, Montreal, Canada. His research focuses on the interplay of nonpositively curved cube complexes with topology and combinatorial group theory. He aims to continue contemplating the key role that cube complexes play in understanding 3-manifolds and nearby infinite groups.
The aim of this annual workshop is to bring together mathematicians and physicists working on disordered or random systems, and to discuss recent developments on themes of common interest. Each of the two days
is devoted to a specic topic; the 2015 session is planned as follows.
The Henri Poincaré Institute is hosting the Abel Committee on 28 January 2015 (1.45pm-6.00pm).To mark the occasion, three public lectures aimed a broad mathematical audience will be held in the great lecture theatre of the "House of mathematics and theoretical physics", the IHP.
