Michael Ward: Julian Cole lecture at the SIAM annual meeting (2022)

This is like an Olympic gold or the World Cup because it is only awarded every four years, "for an outstanding contribution to the mathematical characterization and solution of a challenging problem in the physical or biological sciences, or in engineering, or for the development of mathematical methods for the solution of such problems”. Michael’s citation reads: "For seminal and wide-ranging contributions to the development and application of singular perturbation methods effective in the analysis of spatially localized structures in nonlinear PDEs.”
