Eric Foxall wins CAIMS Doctoral Dissertation Award

CAIMS is pleased to announce that we have two recipients for the CAIMS Doctoral Dissertation Award for 2016, and they are Eric Foxall, University of Victoria, and Wilten Nicola, University of Waterloo.

Eric Foxall's thesis is an exceptionally well-written piece of work on stochastic growth models and represents numerous significant advances at the intersection of probability theory and mathematical biology. It contains a number of deep results that have already earned Foxall recognition as an emerging leader in the field.
