Savage Named to Inaugural Class of AMS Fellows

Congratulations to Dr. Carla D. Savage, professor of computer science in the NC State Computer Science Department, on being named to the inaugural class of Fellows of the American Mathematical Society (AMS).  She joins mathematical scientists from around the world who have been named Fellows for 2013, the program’s initial year. This inaugural class of 1,119 Fellows represents over 600 institutions. 
In addition to Dr. Savage, NC State has three other Fellows:  Dr. Michael Shearer, professor of mathematics; Dr. Michael F. Singer, professor of mathematics; and Dr. Seth M. Sullivant, associate professor of mathematics.
The Fellows of the AMS designation recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics.  Among the goals of the program are to create an enlarged class of mathematicians recognized by their peers as distinguished for their contributions to the profession and to honor excellence.
Regarding the new Fellows of the AMS program and the Society, AMS President Eric M. Friedlander says, “The AMS is the world’s largest and most influential society dedicated to mathematical research, scholarship, and education.  Recent advances in mathematics include solutions to age-old problems and key applications useful for society.  The new AMS Fellows Program recognizes some of the most accomplished mathematicians – AMS members who have contributed to our understanding of deep and important mathematical questions, to applications throughout the scientific world, and to educational excellence.”
Founded in 1888 to further mathematical research and scholarship, the 30,000-member American Mathematical Society fulfills its mission through programs and services that promote mathematical research and its uses, strengthen mathematical education, and foster awareness and appreciation of mathematics and its connections to other disciplines and everyday life.
