TWAS-ROLAC Prize for Young Scientists 2011

This quick post is just to draw to your attention to this post on Aline’s weblog about the TWAS-ROLAC Prize for Young Scientists 2011. In particular, I was delighted to discover that Fernando Coda Marques is among the prize winners! Congratulations Fernando!

Just to say a few words about Fernando, let me mention that he is a 31 years-old Brazilian friend working at IMPA (as full professor) on Differential Geometry and known for his works with Brendle, and Khuri and Schoen on the compactness problem for Yamabe equation, with Brendle and Neves on counterexamples to Min-Oo’s conjecture, and his proof of the path-connectedness of the moduli space of metrics with positive scalar curvature on orientable 3-manifolds based on Perelman’s work on Hamilton’s Ricci flow.
