Join the department in congratulating  David Penneys  who has been awarded an  NSF CAREER  award this year.

Title of proposal: "Representing and Classifying Enriched Quantum Symmetry"

From the abstract of the proposal:"Symmetry plays an important role in mathematics and science…. In recent decades, we have seen the emergence of quantum mathematical objects whose symmetries form a group-like structure called a "tensor category", which has a collection of objects with a binary fusion operation. "

"This project has two main focuses: the representation and the classification of these new enriched quantum symmetries. …"
