Emmanuel Candes has just been awarded the Heineman Prize of Academy of Sciences at Göttingen.
The prize is given since 1961 every two years for by the Academy of Sciences at Göttingen to a researcher who recently published excellent work originating new developments in science. This is an international prize typically awarded to a researcher in the natural sciences (mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology), though it can also recognize work in the humanities.
Congratulations, Emmanuel!
