Sloan Research Fellowship, one of the most significant awards for promising young scientists and researchers in the US. Awanou, born in Benin, obtained the ICTP Diploma in Mathematics in 1998. He later earned his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Georgia. He spent two years as a post doctoral associate at the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications at the University of Minnesota, before joining Northern Illinois University. Awanou’s research interests are primarily in the numerical analysis of partial differential equations.
Renowned mathematicians who have received Sloan Fellowships in the past include John Milnor, John Nash, Isadore Singer and Steve Smale.
