Pattern Recognition

Award-winning mathematician Bryna Kra follows the numbers to discover surprising insights about complex systems, while championing women and minorities to strengthen her field.   In 2010, she won the Levi L. Conant Award from the American Mathematical Society for her expository work on the Green-Tao theorem showing the existence of arbitrarily long arithmetic progressions in prime numbers. She was named to the society’s board of trustees in 2015. The following year, she became a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Earlier this year, Kra was elected to the National Academy of Sciences, an honor bestowed on the country’s best researchers.
