The United States National Academy of Sciences has announced the newest group of members. Of the 120 newly-elected members, 59 of them are women, the most elected in a single year. In this post, I’ve gathered the new members whom I could find in MathSciNet, and added links to their author profiles.
Congratulations new academicians!
