Mathematics professor, Jacob Fox, has become the new director of the Mathematics Research Center (MRC), effective August 1, 2018. Professor Fox takes over the directorship from Professor Soren Galatius who served as director from 2014-2018. Fox’s research interests include combinatorics, geometry, number theory, and probability.
The MRC is vital to sustain the research activities of both pure and applied mathematics in the Stanford Mathematics Department.

Stanford Mathematics Professor Akshay Venkatesh has been awarded the 2018 Fields Medal. The Fields Medal is one of the highest honors in mathematics, awarded every four years to 2-4 mathematicians under 40 years of age at the International Congress of Mathematics. The award recognizes outstanding mathematical achievement for existing work and the promise of future achievement.

Professor Akshay Venkatesh is one of sixteen named Simons Investigators for 2018. Professor Venkatesh is one of three named in Mathematics. The Simons Foundation describes the major focus of his work being “the topology of locally symmetric spaces, in particular on new phenomena that occur when ones leave the setting of Shimura varieties.” Professor Venktatesh joins Stanford Physics professor Xiao-Liange Qi in this year’s group of Simons Investigators.

The Mathematics Department celebrated the completion of the academic year with the commencement celebration on June 17, 2018. This was a joint celebration and graduation with the Mathematical & Computational Science, Data Science, and Statistics departments.
