Shining Stars: Professor Yaiza Canzani and Peers Recognized with 2023 Hettleman Prizes

Shining Stars Recognized with 2023 Hettleman Prizes

The annual Phillip and Ruth Hettleman Prizes for Artistic and Scholarly Achievement have been awarded to five promising faculty members who exemplify groundbreaking and innovative research along with future career promise. These coveted awards, established in 1986 by the late Phillip Hettleman, a proud alumnus of the Carolina class of 1921, and his wife Ruth, shine a spotlight on exceptional junior faculty members who embody a commitment to groundbreaking research and hold the promise of a brilliant future.

Among those gracing this year’s recipient list is our very own Professor Yaiza Canzani. Her work transcends boundaries, connecting microlocal analysis, partial differential equations, probability, geometry, and dynamical systems. On the national stage, her scholarship shines bright, having earned accolades including a prestigious Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship, the Sadosky Research Prize in Analysis, and a National Science Foundation CAREER grant.

The winners will illuminate their groundbreaking research during University Research Week: October 24, from 3 to 5 p.m., at the School of Social Work’s Tate-Turner-Kuralt Auditorium. The full announcement for the prize can be found here. Congratulations Yaiza!
