Nassif Ghoussoub: CRM-Fields-PIMS prize (2019)

Nassif Ghoussoub has been a powerful asset to our Department since he joined as an Assistant Professor in 1979. On Sunday evening at the Awards Banquet associated with the CMS Winter Meeting, his long list of well-deserved accolades got a little longer: he was introduced as the winner of the CRM-Fields-PIMS prize for 2019.

The main selection criterion for this prize is outstanding contribution to the advancement of research. The prize has a monetary component, and comes with an invitation to present a research lecture at each of the sponsoring Institutes.

The nice citation at [1] celebrates both Nassif's "deep, original, and influential contributions" to a whole list of mathematical fields, and his "extraordinary contributions to Canadian mathematics in general."
