The Department is happy to announce that the 2018 winner of the Malcolm Slingsby Robertson Prize in Mathematics for “a graduating PhD student who has demonstrated excellence in research” is:

*Alexander (Sacha) Mangerel*

The Awards subcommittee of the Graduate Committee reviewed the theses and appraisal reports of several excellent graduating students for this prize.

Sacha wrote his thesis titled “*Topics in Multiplicative and Probabilistic Number Theory*“ under the supervision of John Friedlander. One of his papers, joint with O. Klurman, of close to fifty pages, has been accepted for

publication in Mathematische Annalen. He took on a Postdoctoral position at the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques, Université de Montréal.

The prize carries a $500 monetary award. We congratulate Sacha for his excellent work and wish him great success!

Sacha is also the department’s sole nomination for the CMS Doctoral Prize.

Our sole nomination for the CAIMS Cecil Graham Doctoral Dissertation Award (Applied Math) is Shuangjian Zhang, student of Robert McCann. Shuangjian is presently a postdoc at ENSAE ParisTech.

We hope the nominations are successful.
