Professors Lan-Hsuan Huang and Damin Wu have been appointed as members of the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) in Princeton during the academic year 2018-2019. The membership will provide support for Professors Huang and Wu to spend a sabbatical year participating in the IAS special year program on Variational Methods in Geometry.
Professor Huang’s tenure at IAS will be supported by a von Neumann Fellowship. The highly selective von Neumann fellowship program supports early-career mathematicians as members at IAS for a year.
In addition, Professor Huang is one of the 2018 Simons Fellows in Mathematics. The Simons fellowship will provide additional sabbatical funding to support Professor Huang’s research proposal “Geometry of General Relativity,” allowing her to extend her sabbatical leave to the full academic year 2018-2019.
