Sylvia Serfaty, Henri Poincaré Prize winner

Sylvia Serfaty, a full professor at Pierre and Marie Curie University since 2007 and member of the Jacques-Louis Lions Laboratory, received the Henri Poincaré Prize on August 6th during the 17th International Congress of Mathematical Physics.

Awarded to three individuals every three years, the Henri Poincaré Prize is given for outstanding contributions to mathematical physics but also to recognize and support young people who have already made outstanding contributions to the field.

Sylvia Serfaty is specialized in superconductivity and has worked on the Ginzburg-Landau equation for 15 years. Two months per year, the young mathematician gives classes at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences of New York University.
