Daubechies wins Nemmers Prize 2012

Northwestern University has named Ingrid Daubechies the 2012 recipient of the Frederic Esser Nemmers Prize in mathematics. The award recognizes Daubechies' passion as an educator and her work on wavelets, which help with data and image processing.
Daubechies' research affects millions of consumer and technological products, including seismic exploration, audio and video coders, communication systems and medical imaging, and her love of math brings the subject alive for non-math majors as well as those studying the subject. For those reasons, Northwestern selected her as the tenth winner of the Nemmer prize for mathematics, which carries a $200,000 stipend.
