Congratulations to Jeremy Chizewer, this year’s master’s student recipient of the Governor General’s Gold Medal.  The Governor General’s Gold Medal is one of the highest student honours awarded by the University of Waterloo. It is given to one master’s graduate and one PhD graduate every spring in recognition of outstanding scholastic achievement.

Chizewer graduates this June with a MMath in Combinatorics and Optimization. His thesis is titled “Analytic Methods and Combinatorial Plants.” Chizewer’s research combines methods from several areas of mathematics, and concerns succinct data structures, hat guessing numbers, and the sunflower problem.

“It is a huge honour to be chosen for this award from such a talented group of peers,” Chizewer says. “I am grateful to all the people who mentored me along the way.”
