Congratulations to Ivan Yaroslavtsev! His dissertation on Martingales and Stochastic Calculus in Banach Spaces was awarded the Stieltjes Prize for the best mathematical dissertation published in the academic year 2018/2019 in the Netherlands. Ivan Yaroslavtsev received his PhD degree cum laude at the Technical University Delft. He is now working as a postdoc in our research group Stochastic partial differential equations, led by Benjamin Gess. His research is focused on stochastic analysis in Banach spaces, harmonic analysis, and Gaussian measures on infinite-dimensional spaces.
About the Stieltjes prize
Since 1996, the Stieltjes prize is awarded for the best mathematical thesis defended at a Dutch university. All Dutch dissertations automatically participate in this competition. The Stieltjes prize is named after Thomas Joannes Stieltjes (1856-1895) and is awarded by the Platform Wiskunde Nederland (PWN). The prize is 2,500 euros, made available by the Compositio Mathematica Foundation. The winner gives a lecture during the Dutch Mathematical Congress.
We recommend reading this inspiring portrait of Ivan.
