Decemeber 11 , 2015

The Acadamy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas has announced that Alessio Figalli is the recipient of the 2016 Edith and Peter O'Donnell Award for Science.

Quoting from the award page: "Dr. Figalli's research embraces several areas of mathematics, including partial differential equations, calculus of variations and geometric measure theory. These areas have applications to physics, biology, and economics. For instance, one of Dr. Figalli’s main focuses of research is the “optimal transport problem,” which states: given a distribution of mass, find the most efficient way to transport it from one place to another. This problem has important applications in economics, however, more recently, this problem has found new unexpected applications to other areas of mathematics, as well as biology and meteorology."
