Ivan Corwin wins the 2021 Loève Prize
We are excited to share that the 2021 Line and Michel Loève International Prize in Probability has been awarded to Ivan Corwin of Columbia University. This prize commemorates Michel Loève, a Professor at the University of California, Berkeley from 1948 until his untimely death in 1979. The Prize was established by his widow, Line, shortly before her death in 1992. It has been awarded every two years since 1993, and recognizes outstanding contributions by researchers in probability who are under 45 years old.
Ivan Corwin received his Ph.D. in 2011 under Gerard Ben Arous. He is best known for his work on the KPZ (Kardar-Parisi-Zhang) model and its variants. In a long sequence of technical papers with numerous co-authors, he has become a recognized leader in this field, making rigorous some of the predictions from physics, establishing precise mathematical properties and formulas, and elucidating the connections with related processes such as ASEP.
Please join the Statistics community in honoring this year's winner at the 2021 Loève Prize Celebration on Monday, November 8th, 2021 at 4:15 PM at the Women's Faculty Club.
