New York University's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences is a leading center for research and education in mathematics and computer science. For seventy-five years, we have contributed to U.S. and international science and engineering by promoting an integrated view of mathematics and computation.
The Courant Institute has played a central role in the development of applied mathematics, analysis, and computer science. Our faculty has received numerous national and international awards in recognition of their extraordinary research accomplishments. We are equally proud of our former students and postdoctoral associates who now provide leadership at universities, government laboratories, and private industry throughout the world.
Mike is Assistant professor of mathematics at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering and the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. He received the 2017 ONR Young Investigator award to pursue a new generation of simulation and design tools for computational electromagnetics using fast, high-order, analysis-based algorithms. Congratulations, Mike!
Yann LeCun has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, "for developing convolutional neural networks and their applications in computer vision and other areas of artificial intelligence." Congratulations!
