Nancy Hingston Named 2017 Fellow of the American Mathematical Society

Nancy Hingston Named 2017 Fellow of the American Mathematical Society

Congratulations to Dr. Nancy Hingston, who has been named as a 2017 fellow of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) “for contributions to differential geometry and the study of closed geodesics.” She is the first TCNJ faculty member to receive this honor and one of only 65 mathematicians honored this year.

The Fellows of the American Mathematical Society program recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics. The goals of this program are to:

  1. Create an enlarged class of mathematicians recognized by their peers as distinguished for their contributions to the profession.
  2. Honor not only the extraordinary but also the excellent.
  3. Lift the morale of the profession by providing an honor more accessible than those previously available.
  4. Make mathematicians more competitive for awards, promotion and honors when they are being compared with colleagues from other disciplines.
  5. Support the advancement of more mathematicians in leadership positions in their own institutions and in the broader society.

The AMS was founded in 1888 “to further the interests of mathematical research, scholarship and education, serving the national and international community through publications, meetings, advocacy and other programs.”
