Congratulations, Martin! Martin received the 2017 JD Crawford Prize. It is awarded biannually by SIAM for recent outstanding work on a topic in nonlinear science. Martin got the award âfor breakthrough insights, highlighting the importance of canards and mixed-mode oscillations, that have application to neuroscience and open up new fields of research for dynamical systems with multiple time-scales.â https://www.siam.org/prizes/sponsored/crawford.php Martin further received the SIAM Outstanding Paper award for his work with Richard Bertram and Theo Vo (Martin’s former PhD student) for their paper "Multiple Geometric Viewpoints of Mixed Mode Dynamics Associated with Pseudo-plateau Bursting". Each year three paper from all(!) SIAM journals are selected for this prize. https://www.siam.org/prizes/sponsored/outstanding_paper.php This is excellent news for the School. Well done, Martin!
