Three female scientists from the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences have received scholarships under the Institute of Mathematical Sciences of America program at the University of Miami.
At a ceremony in Sofia, the International Center for Mathematical Sciences, as well as the Institute of Mathematical Sciences of America, were honored by Associate Professor Elitsa Hristova, Associate Professor Krasimira Ivanova, and Associate Professor Stella Pancheva-Zelezova. The awards were announced by the Director of the Scholarship Program, Professor Mina Teicher.
Elisa Hristova is an associate professor at the Department of “Algebra and Logic” at the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. He defended his PhD at Jacobs University in Bremen, Germany in 2013.
