The Faculty of Science is excited to announce that Dr. Kseniya Garaschuk has been named the recipient of the 2021 Graham Wright Award for Distinguished Service from the Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS).
The Graham Wright Award for Distinguished Service is presented annually to an individual who has made sustained and significant contributions to the Canadian mathematics community, particularly through their involvement with the CMS. This award is named in honour of Dr. Graham Wright (Ottawa) who served as the CMS Executive Director and Secretary from 1979 to 2009.
Kseniya Garaschuk has made distinguished contributions to the Canadian mathematical community and, in particular, to the Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS) in numerous ways. She served on the CMS Student Committee (StudC) as Chair from 2009 to 2015, as Student Director on the CMS Board of Directors from 2009 to 2013, as Associate Editor of A-Taste-Of-Mathematics Editorial Board from 2016 to 2020, has been on the CMS Notes Editorial Board since 2018 and on the CMS Education Committee since 2014, where she has also participated in many Teaching in Excellence and Adrien Pouliot award selection committees. One of Kseniya’s most important roles within the CMS has been her involvement with Crux Mathematicorum. She works tirelessly on this project because she believes in the importance of the publication within the international mathematical community.
