Stephen Jackson speaks at ICM and Named Fellow of the AMS

2018 has been an auspicious year for Regents' Professor Stephen Jackson. In August, Professor Jackson delivered an invited lecture in the logic and foundations section of the International Congress of Mathematicians in Rio de Janeiro. An invitation to speak at the quadrennial International Congress of Mathematicians is one of the highest honors a mathematician can receive in his career. Then, in November, Professor Jackson was selected as a member of the 2019 class of Fellows of the American Mathematical Society "for [his] contributions to set theory and its applications." 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. Both recognitions are testament to Professor Jackson's leading role in the advancement of research in set theory.
