Professor Amit Singer was named today as a finalist for The Blavatnik National Awards for Young Scientists. He is one of the 31 National Finalists who will be competing for three spots as the 2016 Blavatnik National Laureates. The Finalists were selected from 308 nominations of outstanding faculty-rank researchers from 148 of the nation’s leading academic and research institutions. The three National Laureates will be announced in later this month and will each receive an unrestricted cash prize of $250,000, the largest prize of its kind for early-career scientists.
Congratulations to Arka Adhikari and Ofer Kimchi! They are our two undergraduate academic prize winners for their independent work submitted for the completion of the Certificate in Applied and Computational Mathematics.
Emily A. Carter, a Princeton faculty member since 2004 and founding director of the University's Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, has been selected as the next dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science. Her appointment is effective July 1.

PACM (the Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics) is an interdisciplinary and interdepartmental program that provides a home for people from many fields and directions, who share a passion for mathematics and its applications.
Our core faculty is presently constituted by 15 core faculty members who hold a joint appointment between their home department and PACM; the faculty also function as an executive committee for PACM in all its important decisions.
Drawing from a wide range of departments, from the physical sciences and engineering to the human sciences, PACM counts 52 Princeton faculty members among its associate faculty; they provide mentoring and advising to our students interested in their fields of expertise. We have both a graduate program and an undergraduate certificate program. Currently for the 2015-16 academic year, we have 34 graduate students enrolled and 30 undergraduate certificate students.
