Prof. Tosatti Appointed Poincare Chair

Condratulations to Valentino Tosatti who was appointed to the 2017 Poincare Chair at the Institute of Henri Poincare.

Mark Pinsky, Professor Emeritus of the Math Department, passed away December 8, 2016.

Mark joined Northwestern in 1968 and became a Professor in 1976. Mark helped found the Midwest Probability Colloquium, which has met every fall since, almost always at Northwestern. Mark was the main organizer and guiding spirit behind the MPC until 2011, his last year before retirement. In 2008 Mark and his wife Joanna endowed the Mark and Joanna Pinsky Distinguished Lecture Series, a yearly event which brings a distinguished mathematician to this department to give talks in important areas of current research.
