Diana Skrzydlo wins Robert V. Hogg award

While Skrzydlo teaches university classes at all levels, she received the award in recognition of her work on STAT 230, an introductory statistics course that all math students are required to take.

As a defenseman for the Soo Thunderbirds, Colorado College Tigers and Waterloo Warriors hockey teams, David Radke often felt that his contribution wasn’t completely captured by the sport’s offensively-biased statistics–goals, assists, and shots on net.

In Memoriam: Paul Dirksen

Paul Dirksen, a pioneer computer scientist at the University of Waterloo, passed away on April 8, 2023. He was 83. Paul was a vital part of UW computing history. He was one of the developers of the WATFOR and WATFIV compilers for the IBM 360 mainframe system in the late 1960s. While a previous team had developed an earlier WATFOR for the IBM 7040, the 360 became the foundation architecture for several generations of IBM mainframes.

On April 17 and 18, students, faculty, and members of the community gathered to take part in the inaugural Research Discovery Days, a research showcase and networking event hosted by the Math Innovation Office. The event, which featured both faculty and graduate student research presentations as well as discussions about entrepreneurship, aimed to connect industry partners with researchers doing exciting work in the Faculty of Mathematics.

On Friday, March 31, the University of Waterloo Faculty of Mathematics proudly unveiled two spaces in the new Math Advancement Hub: the Ronald C. Mullin Boardroom, named in honour of the University’s first alum and a former professor in the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization, and the Pat Cunningham Corner, named in honour of the Faculty of Mathematics first alumni officer.

Today, the University of Waterloo announced a 5G and beyond mobile network technology consortium to develop secure 5G mobile networks and improve Canada’s security and defence. The group is funded by the Department of National Defence (DND) through its Innovation for Defence Excellence and Security (IDEaS) program. A team of computer scientists at Waterloo is leading the $1.5 million multi-partner consortium.
