Congratulations to Dr. Daniel Massatt for being awarded the 2019 Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematicians (SIAM) Student Paper Prize for research he did while a PhD student at the University of Minnesota, prior to joining us at U.Chicago as a Kruskal Instructor in Autumn 2018. The SIAM Student Paper Prize is awarded annually to the student author(s) of the most outstanding paper(s) accepted by SIAM journals within the three years preceding the nomination deadline. The award is based solely on the merit and content of the student's contribution to the submitted paper. For more information about Daniel and his award, please see the article here. His paper “Electronic Density of States for Incommensurate Layers,” was published in Multiscale Modeling and Simulation: A SIAM Interdisciplinary Journal in 2017, and is co-authored by Mitch Luskin, Daniel's thesis advisor, and his collaborator Christoph Ortner.
