More great news to share in terms of our ACO alumni. 

Luke Postle (ACO PhD 2012; advisor: Regents' Prof. Robin Thomas) is being recognized for his graph theory work with the 2021 Coxeter-James Prize! Congratulations to Luke on this well-deserved recognition!

Dr. Luke Postle is an exceptional young researcher in structural graph theory, earning his Ph.D. in 2012 in the Department of Mathematics at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He quickly earned a strong international reputation by using a broad and innovative range of tools to solve old and deep problems in combinatorics. He made several significant contributions, to difficult, important, and long-standing open problems in graph colouring.

About the Coxeter-James Prize

The Coxeter-James Prize was inaugurated in 1978 to recognize young mathematicians who have made outstanding contributions to mathematical research. The award is named for two former CMS presidents, Donald Coxeter, who is recognized as one of the world’s best geometers, and Ralph Duncan James, who was a great contributor to mathematical development in Canada.
