UBC mathematician Dong Li has been awarded the university’s Charles A McDowell award for excellence in pure or applied scientific research by a young faculty member.
Li’s research focuses on the analysis of nonlinear partial differential equations, especially on the fundamental posedness issues, and long-time asymptotic behavior, of solutions.
Four UBC Science researchers were recognized with Killam Research Prizes in the senior category:
- Harry Brumer (Chemistry/Michael Smith Labs)
- Christoph Hauert (Mathematics)
- Douglas Scott (Physics and Astronomy)
- Rashid Sumaila (Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries)
And four with Killam Fellowships in the junior category:
- Douglas Altshuler (Zoology)
- Amy Angert (Botany/Zoology)
- Dragos Ghioca (Mathematics)
- Mary O’Connor (Zoology)
Winners of 2016 Faculty Research Awards were selected by UBC’s Faculty Research Award Committee, which spans arts and humanities, applied science, science, and medicine. Each spring, the Office of the Vice President Research hosts an awards reception to recognize outstanding UBC researchers. This year the reception will be held on April 5, 2017.
