Wisconsin math conquers Britain

This year’s winners of the Churchill Scholarship have been announced — and of the fourteen US undergraduates who will spend 2010-11 at Cambridge studying the sciences, three have studied math at UW!  Daniel Lecoanet is the first UW undergrad to win a Churchill in 30 years; he was my research assistant for two years, carrying out experiments on low-height points on P^1 over cubic fields that were essential to the production of this paper.  Two other winners, George Boxer from Princeton and Maria Monks from MIT, are former participants in Ken Ono’s star-studded REU program in number theory.
