Bobby Wilson has been named one of three inaugural fellows for the 2020 Karen EDGE Fellowship. He is joined by Pamela Harris, Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Williams College, and Mohamed Omar, Associate Professor at Harvey Mudd College.
The Karen EDGE Fellowship Program was established with a generous gift from Karen Uhlenbeck on the occasion of her 2019 Abel Prize. The Fellowships are designed to support and enhance the research programs and collaborations of mid-career mathematicians who are members of an underrepresented minority group. The 2020 Fellows were selected on the basis of their excellent research programs and their plans to use the funds for enhancing those programs through collaboration and travel.
