Exeter mathematician wins distinguished prize
Dr Cornelia Druţu, Exeter College’s Fellow in Topology, has been awarded the Whitehead Prize for her work in geometric group theory.
The Whitehead Prize is awarded yearly by the London Mathematical Society to a mathematician working in the United Kingdom who is at an early stage of his or her career. The prize is named in memory of homotopy theory pioneer J. H. C. Whitehead.
The College is thrilled by the news.
