The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) will present the second AWM-Joan & Joseph Birman Research Prize in Topology and Geometry to Emmy Murphy, Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Atlanta, GA in January 2017. Established in 2013, the AWM-Joan & Joseph Birman Research Prize recognizes exceptional research in topology/geometry by a woman early in her career. The award is made possible by a generous contribution from Joan and Joseph Birman. The biennial presentation of this prize serves to highlight to the community outstanding contributions by women in the fields of topology and geometry and to advance the careers of the prize recipients.
