Daniel Remenik, Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematical Engineering, Center for Mathematical Modeling, at the Universidad de Chile, has been awarded two prizes recently.

The Rollo Davidson Prize for 2021 was awarded jointly to Ioan Manolescu, Université de Fribourg, in recognition of his outstanding work on critical physical systems in two dimensions, particularly the random cluster and Potts models; and to Daniel Remenik, in recognition of his transformative contributions to the understanding of the KPZ fixed point. (Rollo Davidson was an accomplished mathematician of remarkable potential, and Fellow-elect of Churchill College, Cambridge, who died in a mountain climbing accident on the Piz Bernina in 1970. He was 25. The Rollo Davidson Trust was founded in 1975 in his memory, with initial funding coming from the royalties of two collections of papers published in 1973–74 by Rollo’s friends and colleagues. The Trust awards an annual Prize for young probabilists.)

The Mathematical Council of the Americas (MCofA) awards five MCA Prizes to mathematicians who are no more than 12 years past their PhD at the date of the Mathematical Congress of the Americas. The winners are invited to give a lecture on their work at the Congress. Daniel Remenik was among the five winners of the 2021 MCA Prizes, which will awarded on the occasion of the Third Mathematical Congress of the Americas (Buenos Aires, July 19–24, 2021).
