]]>The post Professor Guihua Gong is elected to the 2023 AMS fellows class appeared first on Department of Mathematics.

]]>Professor Guihua Gong is an outstanding expert in operator algebra and non-commutative geometry. After receiving his Ph.D. from SUNY at Stony Brook in 1990 under the direction of Ronald G. Douglas, Gong visited the Fields Institute from 1990 to 1994. Gong’s research interests include C*-algebra, noncommutative geometry, classification of C*-algebras, and K-theory. He is best known for his fundamental contributions to the theory of classification of C*-algebras and strong Novikov conjecture. His papers were published in various high-level journals, such as Annals of Mathematics, Inventiones Mathematicae, and Journal of Reine Angew. Math, Duke Mathematical Journal, Geometric and Functional Analysis (GAFA), and so on. He was awarded the Israel Halperin prize. The Israel Halperin Prize is awarded every five years by the Canadian Annual Symposium. He is a fellow of the American Mathematical Society since 2023.

Professor Gong has been instrumental in the creation and development of our Ph.D. program. He has been advisor or coadvisor of the following UPR Ph.D. graduates:

Sandro Molina Cabrera | Torsion in the K_{0}-Group of Recursive Subhomogeneous Algebras |

Zhiqiang Li | A Classification of Certain Simple Ash-Algebras over the Unit Interval with Two Singular Points |

Kun Wang | Classification of Splitting Interval Algebras and the C*-Exponential Length |

Bo Cui | Exponential Rank and Classification of AH-Algebras using Morse Theory |

Ivan Velazquez | The exponential length of the commutator subgroup of the unitary group of goodearl algebras |

]]>Dr. Jorge López Fernández worked for more than 40 years in the Mathematics Department of the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras Campus. He contributed to its development both as a professor of calculus and analysis and as a director for eight years. He also contributed to improving Mathematics Education in Puerto Rico. One of the greatest contributions was the creation of the Regional Centers for Mathematics Training and Instruction (CRAIM) dedicated to the professional development of teachers. From CRAIM, Dr. López hired the best resources available for the training of math teachers and the editing and publication of educational books and materials for the Puerto Rico Department of Education. Dr. López established contacts at the international level and introduced experts from the United States, Spain and the Netherlands to Puerto Rico. He also presented Mathematics in Context (MeC-PR) based on the principles of Realistic Mathematics Education (RME), a theory originated in the Netherlands by Hans Freudenthal and developed by his followers at the Institute that bears his name.

Dr. López Fernández loved the university and we consider it a well-deserved tribute for his dedication to the students and his alma mater.Omar Hernández Rodríguez, EdD
