Liam Watson: Young Faculty Award (2019)

Liam Watson has won the 2019 Young Faculty Award sponsored by UBC and PIMS. Liam joined our Department in summer 2018, with a research focus on Low Dimensional Topology. He has contributed a lot during his short time here, and not only through his highly-regarded research. He served on last year's Merit Review Committee and on this year's dca, and he is currently on the Dean's Committee to identify our next Department Head. Liam's impressive research and collaborative links with other topologists have also landed him a successful PIMS Collaborative Research Group Award.

This prize was created by two founding donors, Anton Kuipers and Darrell Duffie, to recognize UBC researchers for their leading edge work in mathematics or its applications in the sciences.
