Deputy Managing Director and Co-founder of Microsoft Research New England, Borgs has been named a Fellow for his “outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics.” Specifically, Borgs has worked to bring together analysis, probability theory, graph theory, and combinatorics with mathematical statistical physics and computer science.

“It is always a pleasure to learn about the work of other mathematicians. Each of us knows many amazing individuals; the Fellows program is a chance to shout from the rooftops,” remarked AMS President David A. Vogan Jr. And shout from the rooftops Borgs’ colleagues did, nicknaming him “the Big Papi of NERD.” Excellent work, Christian.

To keep up with Aimee you need to be up early. Like 5 AM early. Then you have to squeeze in Crossfit, grow STEM education programs, collaborate with community leaders and still keep up with her family - 2 boys require high energy. Or you can hit the snooze and sleep soundly knowing Aimee has that all covered.
