Congratulations to Associate Professor Anthony Licata who was awarded the 2017 AustMS medal at the opening of the Annual AustMS meeting at Macquarie University in Sydney. A/Prof Licata has been honoured for his work in geometric representation theory and categorification. Research that has deepened our understanding of modern mathematical notions of symmetry. His ability to form connections between disparate fields has both paved the way to solve outstanding problems and also set new directions for future mathematical research.
A/Prof Licata said, “I thank the Australian Mathematical Society for this award, and for the honour of sharing it with Richard. The Australian mathematical community has been especially welcoming to me in the last six years, and very I’m grateful for the opportunity to contribute in some small way to Australian mathematics."
