The 2022 André Aisenstadt Prize is awarded to Yevgeny Liokumovich (University of Toronto) for his numerous and fundamental contributions to geometric analysis, in particular his proof with F. Marques and A. Neves of a famous conjecture due to Gromov providing an appropriate Weyl Law for the volume spectrum of general Riemannian manifolds.
Professor Liokumovich obtained his PhD in 2015 at the University of Toronto under the supervision of Alex Nabutovsky and Regina Rotman. After several postdoctoral fellowships at top institutions in his area — Imperial College of London, MIT and IAS, he returned to a tenure-track Assistant Professorship at the University of Toronto in 2019. His research interests are centered in geometric analysis. Professor Liokumovich was one of the two 2020 Nirenberg lecturers in geometric analysis at the CRM, and he was awarded a Sloan Fellowship in 2021
The André Aisenstadt Prize in Mathematics
Created in 1991 by the CRM, the André Aisenstadt Prize in Mathematics, which includes a scholarship and a medal, recognizes outstanding research results in pure or applied mathematics by a young Canadian mathematician.
