USC Old Scholar wins Maths prize

Congratulations David Arnold (Class of 2007)

Three members of the University of Adelaide‘s School of Mathematical Sciences have won prizes at this year’s ANZIAM (Australia and New Zealand Industrial and Applied Mathematics) conference.  University Senior College Old Scholar (Class of 2007), and current University of Adelaide PhD student David Arnold was the joint winner of the TM Cherry prize for the best student presentation at the conference.

The TM Cherry Prize is a student prize that was introduced in 1969 at Victor Harbor, and is awarded annually to the best student paper presented at the Conference. In May, 1976, ANZIAM (then the Division of Applied Mathematics) adopted the title “T.M. Cherry Student Prize” in honour of one of Australia’s leading scientists, Professor Sir Thomas MacFarland Cherry, Kt., Sc.D., F.A.A., F.R.S.

Associate Professor Joshua Ross won the JH Michell medal, which is awarded for exceptional research achievements by a young researcher. New PhD student Alexander Tam was awarded the AF Pillow supplementary scholarship, intended to help retain exceptional young applied mathematicians for PhD study in Australia.
