I would like to invite everyone to attend this year’s A&S Distinguished Professor Lecture given by Dr. Peter Perry from the Department of Mathematics. Dr. Perry’s research focuses on spectral and scattering theory, spectral geometry, inverse problems and nonlinear partial differential equations. He is former chair of the Department of Mathematics and currently serves as the Director of the MathExcel Program. His awards and honors include UK University Research Professor, an NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship, and Fulbright Fellowship. He is the author of numerous books and articles, the organizer of a host of meetings and conferences, and has given presentations across the globe.
Since 1944, A&S has recognized the accomplishments of its faculty with the Distinguished Professor Award – the highest professional recognition offered by the College. It is bestowed on the basis of three criteria: outstanding research, exceptionally effective teaching, and distinguished professional service.
Dr. Perry’s lecture, “Making Waves with Mathematics,”
will be held at the W. T. Young Auditorium on Thursday, April 28 at 7:30 p.m. There will be a reception immediately following in the W. T. Young Gallery.
Congratulations to our A&S Distinguished Professor – we hope to see you there!
