Jennifer Chayes, Associate Provost of the Division of Computing, Data Science, and Society, was invited to accept Honorary Membership in the London Mathematical Society, in recognition of her distinguished career in Mathematics. Prof. Chayes has made fundamental contributions to many of the most prominent topics in the mathematics, computation, and application of network science, data science, and allied areas. She co-invented the field of graphons, and she has also made foundational contributions to phase transitions in networks, social influence and other spreading processes, spin-glass models, ethical decision- making, climate change and machine learning, and many others. Prof Chayes’s research has developed and utilized deep connections between mathematics and statistical physics. It also emphasizes the importance of these ideas for practical computation and machine learning.
