It is with great pleasure that the Canadian Applied and Industrial Mathematics Society presents the 2020 Cecil Graham Doctoral Dissertation Award to Dr. Nadia Shardt. The award is given in recognition of an extraordinarily thorough thesis in which Dr. Shardt developed new mathematical models that relate thermodynamical properties of multicomponent mixtures containing vapor and liquid phases with effects of curvature and surface tension of interfacial surfaces separating mixture components and phases. Theoretical results were rigorously validated using experimental data. This work has strong scientific merit in multiple areas where multicomponent, multiphase systems arise, including chemical engineering, medical research, and nanotechnology.
