Professor Allan Sly Receives Doeblin Prize
During the 2016 Bernoulli World Congress in Toronto, Allan Sly was awarded the Doeblin Prize from the Bernoulli Society for Mathematical Statistics and Probability. The Doeblin Prize "is awarded to a single individual for outstanding research in the field of probability, and who is at the beginning of his or her mathematical career. "
The citation reads,
[Allan Sly is] a very broad young probabilist, with great taste for fundamental problems at the intersection between probability theory, statistics, statistical physics and theoretical computer science. [He has] worked on topics such as Glauber dynamics for the Ising model, random k-satisfiability, interacting particle systems, the connection between computational complexity and phase transitions. Each of these topics has witnesed fundamental progress due to [his] efforts.
