Math profs named AMS Fellows

Lisa Jeffrey and John Friedlander, mathematics professors at UTSC, were selected as Fellows of the American Mathematical Society.

Mathematics Professors Lisa Jeffrey and John Friedlander were named inaugural Fellows of the American Mathematical Society for 2013.

The Fellows of the American Mathematical Society program recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics. The new fellows were announced in November.

Jeffrey’s research uses techniques from pure mathematics to prove results obtained by theoretical physicists using the methods of quantum field theory.

She is a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, and a recipient of a number of awards, including the Krieger-Nelson Prize from the Canadian Mathematical Society.

Friedlander specializes in analytic number theory. He’s known for his work with Henryk Iwaniec of Rutgers University, proving that there are infinitely many prime numbers that can be written as the sum of the square of an integer plus the fourth power of an integer.

Friedlander is a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, and a recipient of a number of awards, including the Jeffery-Williams Prize from the Canadian Mathematical Society.
