About Us

Dean's Message:

In the Faculty of Mathematics, we are surrounded by extraordinarily talented people.  It’s my privilege to acknowledge these members of our Faculty who have been recognized recently for their ability to perform and inspire.

Congratulations to:

  • Distinguished Teaching Award winner Alfred Menezes, Professor and Chair of the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization
  • Musical Math students Andrew Song, Nat (Chun Ho) Leung, David (Li) Yin, and Young Ho Yoo of orchestra@uwaterloo, whose talents were honoured at the biannual concerto and aria competition
  • Bernoulli Trials Contest winners Sam Eisenstat (1st place), Boyu Li (2nd place) and Jimmy He (3rd place) who demonstrated outstanding mathematical intuition in this recreational contest

We will be hosting two very special events in the month of April.
Ming Li, Canada Research Chair in Bioinformatics, will present “Information Distance from a Question to an Answer” at a Faculty wide colloquium on April 18th at 3:30 pm in DC 1302 with a reception to follow.
On April 27th at 3:00 pm, we will celebrate the dedication of the Bruce White Atrium in our new Mathematics 3 building.  The atrium is being named in recognition of a retired high school math teacher,  Bruce White, by John Hele (BMath ’80), Executive Vice President and CFO of Arch Capital Group Ltd.  Come out and hear how Mr. White’s lifelong commitment to fostering students’ passion for mathematics continues to inspire.
