Ingrid Daubechies, the William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of Mathematics and Applied and Computational Mathematics, has been named a recipient of the Pioneer Prize by the International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.

She will be honored in July at the opening ceremony of the International Congress for Industrial and Applied Mathematics in Zurich. The conference, which takes place every four years, has been described as the major event in the field of applied mathematics.

The Pioneer Prize was established for pioneering work introducing applied math and computing techniques to an industrial problem area or scientific field.

A Princeton faculty member since 1994, Daubechies focuses her research on the mathematical aspects of time-frequency analysis and, in particular, on wavelets, which have important applications in data compression.

The American Institute for Chemical Engineers has selected Christodoulos Floudas to receive its 2006 Computing in Chemical Engineering Award.

The award recognizes “outstanding contributions in the application of computing and systems technology to chemical engineering.” Floudas, a professor of chemical engineering, will receive the award and deliver an address at the organization’s annual meeting in San Francisco the week of Nov. 12.

Floudas is an authority in mathematical modeling and optimization of complex systems at the macroscopic and microscopic level. His research interests lie at the interface of chemical engineering, applied mathematics, operations research and computational biology. He has been a Princeton faculty member since 1986.
