Caroline Terry

Congratulations to Professor Caroline Terry who was awarded an NSF-CAREER grant for her proposal "CAREER: Model theoretic classification theory, Fourier analysis, and hypergraph regularity"! As a previous winner of the highly prestigious 2023 Sloan Research Fellowship, she is one of the most promising scientific researchers working today with many achievements placing her among the next generation of scientific leaders in the U.S. and Canada. 

The goal of this project is to develop connections between these tools and generalizations of stability theory. The PI will prove theorems connecting tame behavior in hypergraph and arithmetic regularity lemmas to new generalizations of stability. Complementing this, the PI will develop the pure model theory of these higher order notions of stability, as well as higher order analogues of stable group theory. Therefore, the grant will award her a total of $472,689 over the next years in order to fund this goal. 

The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization. Activities pursued by early-career faculty should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research.
