CAIMS-Fields Industrial Mathematics Prize: Huaxiong Huang

Friday, April 8, 2016

The Fields Institute is pleased to announce in conjunction with the Canadian Applied and Industrial 
Mathematics Society (CAIMS) that Professor Huaxiong Huang from the Department of Mathematics and
Statistics at York University is the 2016 winner of the CAIMS-Fields Industrial Mathematics Prize. 

Huang was the inaugural Industrial Coordinator at the Pacific Institute of Mathematical Sciences, he played 
a critical role in the early years of the Industrial Problem-Solving Workshops, and he was also involved in the 
Graduate Industrial Mathematical Modelling Camps.

Professor Huang has an impressive research record, with over 75 journal publications that involve a 
surprisingly broad cross-section of applied mathematics including partial differential equations, asymptotics, 
fluid mechanics, probability, stochastic processes, and scientific computing. His work impacts a broad sphere of 
influence to the study of applications ranging from industrial sectors such as banking, insurance, biomedicine, 
energy, and material science.
