Helminck steps down as Department Head, Chertock named Interim Head

Professor Loek Helminck stepped down as Head of the Mathematics Departments on August 16. Professor Alina Chertock replaced him as Interim Head. Professor Hien Tran will continue as Associate Head.

Helminck served as Interim Head in 2005-2006 and as Head since 2006. Highlights of his tenure include:

* The construction of SAS Hall, which became the Department's home in 2009.
* The 2010 American Mathematical Society Award for an Exemplary Program or Achievement in a Mathematics Department, which recognized the Department's blend of fundamental and interdisciplinary research, integration of undergraduate and graduate students into research, and professional development opportunities for graduate students. The Department's Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program, which was started by Professor Helminck and was one of the largest in the country, was especially praised.
* The 2011 American Mathematical Society Award for Mathematics Programs that Make a Difference, which recognized the Department's success with students from underrepresented groups. Since 1999 the Department had produced almost 13% of all African-American mathematics Ph.D.'s in the nation.
* Hiring of numerous young faculty, who enjoyed unprecedented success, including a Packard Fellowship for Science and Engineering (only the third in any field in the history of NC State) and a Sloan Foundation Research Fellowship (the second in the history of NC State).

Helminck will remain a member of the Department, continuing research and teaching.

Professor Chertock joined the Department in 2002 after completing her Ph.D. at Tel Aviv University and a postdoc at the University of California, Berkeley. She is an expert on numerical methods for partial differential equations.

NC State grad John Storey wins prestigious statistics award

John Storey, a 1998 honors graduate in mathematics and valedictorian, has won the 2015 COPSS Presidents' Award, given annually by the Committee of Presidents of Statistical Societies to a member of the statistics community under age 40. This award is often considered to be the most prestigious in the field of statistics. Storey won the award "for transformative and groundbreaking research on the theory, methods, and applications of inference methods, particularly significance testing, applied to high-dimensional data analysis problems; for impactful development and application of statistics to modern biological and medical research; and for service to the field of statistics through interdisciplinary activities." Storey is the Harman Professor in Genomics at Princeton University, where he is Director of the Center for Statistics and Machine Learning.


Semazzi leads Lake Victoria climate initiative

Professor Fredrick Semazzi, who holds a joint appointment in the Mathematics and Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences Departments, is leading an international initiative to combine climate research with economic development planning for Africa's Lake Victoria region. The initiative is the subject of a College of Sciences news story.
