Kathryn Hare from the Department of Pure Mathematics has been named Distinguished Professor Emerita in recognition of her storied career at Waterloo.

Hare has been a mainstay in Pure Math since 1988 when she first took up a role as an assistant professor. She had previously attended Waterloo as an undergraduate student, completing a BMath in 1981.

Among her many accolades, she is a Fellow of the Canadian Mathematical Society, a winner of the Faculty of Mathematics Distinction in Teaching Award and received an Honourary Doctorate of Technology from Chalmers University of Technology.

Hare's research focuses on harmonic analysis on compact Lie groups, fractals and harmonic analysis, thin sets and multipliers and maximal operators. She has published widely in top academic journals for more than thirty years.

She has tirelessly served the Department of Pure Math, the Faculty of Mathematics and the University more broadly in many administrative roles and committees.

Hare will be conferred the Distinguished Professor Emerita distinction at the upcoming Spring 2022 Convocation.
