Our colleagues, Maryam Mirzakhani and Kannan Soundararjan, have been named Simons Investigators in Mathematics.
These prestigious awards (only 4 were given this year in Mathematics) are given yearly by the Simons Foundation and provide $100K per year for 5-10 years to support the research of the investigators.
See https://simonsfoundation.org/program-areas/mathematics-and-physical-science/funding-to-individuals/ for further information.

Congratulations, Maryam and Sound!
