We are pleased to announce that Mr. Siyuan Lu, a PhD student is the 2017 recipient of the Carl Herz Prize.
The Prize has been awarded to Mr. Lu for his article, co-authored with Pengfei Guan, “Curvature estimates for immersed hypersurfaces in Riemannian manifolds” published in Inventiones mathematicae. At this early stage in his career, Lu has already made significant contributions to the field of fully nonlinear elliptic equations and their use in geometric analysis, having single-authored two other high quality research papers in the area.
Mr. Lu obtained his Bachelor's of science degree at the University of Science and Technology of China and completed his Ph.D. entitled On a class of fully nonlinear equations and their applications in geometry under the supervision of Pengfei Guan. Next Fall he will be continuing as a postdoctoral fellow at Rutgers University.
The Carl Herz Prize recognizes a research contribution made by a doctoral student registered at one of the ISM universities whose supervisor is a member of an ISM scientific group. The $4,000 cash prize is accompanied by a $1,000 travel grant, allowing the recipient to present his or her research at a conference. This year’s Selection Committee consisted of Galia Dafni (Concordia), Alexander Fribergh (Université de Montréal), Antonio Lei (Université Laval), Frédéric Rochon (UQAM), and Vasilisa Shramchenko (Université de Sherbrooke).
