Penny Haxell awarded the 2006 Krieger-Nelson Prize

Tuesday, February 28, 2006

Professor Penny E. Haxell works in combinatorics and graph theory, focussing on combinatorial, probabilistic and, more recently, topological tools in a very fascinating manner. In all her work she exhibits impressive capability, originality and technical ability, and her pioneering work is well known internationally.

Her work in 1995 with Kohayakawa and Luczak, led to a profound study of Szemeredi's lemma in a sparse setting, and their methods are still being developed fruitfully by others.
