Russians named laureates of international science prize

30 Oct '19
International researchers with Russian roots will be awarded this year’s George Gamow Prize, a prestigious American award, for their breakthroughs in mathematics and chemistry.

The Gamow Awards have been established by the Russian-American Science Association (RASA), and in 2019 it will be presented on November 9, 2019, at the RASA-America Conference in Chapel Hill, NC.

The 2019 Gamow Awardees are:

1) Vera Serganova, professor of mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley, “for outstanding work on the representation theory of superalgebras Lie.” Ms. Serganova graduated from the Moscow Lomonosov State University (MSU), Department of Mechanics and Mathematics, and since 2014 has been a plenary speaker at the annual International Mathematics Congress.

2) Valery Fokin, professor of chemistry at the University of Southern California, “for pioneering chemical research and the development of the efficient methods of the design of chemical compounds.” Mr. Fokin graduated from Lobachevsky University in Nizhny Novgorod, in Russia’s mid-Volga area, and has been repeatedly listed as one of the world’s most quoted chemists.

The Prize is awarded annually since 2015 and named after George Gamow, a well-known Soviet-American theoretical physicist and cosmologist, early advocate and developer of Lemaître's Big Bang theory, and the author of a theoretical explanation of alpha decay via quantum tunneling.
