Sylvia Serfaty awarded again, this time with the Mergier-Bourdeix Grand Prize from the Academy of Sciences

Sylvia Serfaty, professor-researcher in the applied mathematics laboratory Jacques-Louis Lions (CNRS/UPMC), was given the Mergier-Bourdeix Award from the French Academy of Sciences.


This award is given to young French researchers dedicated to basic research with no profit, not intended for immediate application and yet the results reveal exceptional gifts. This award is almost always awarded to one person, however this year, Sylvia Serfaty shares the prize with Pierre Vanhove, an engineer at Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique (The French Atomic Energy Commission) in Saclay. Winner of the Henri Poincaré award in 2012, Sylvia Serfaty is once again recognized for her research on the Ginzburg-Landau model of superconductivity.
