My Research

"Research for me is something like chasing squirrels. As soon as you spot one and leap towards it, it darts away, zigging and zagging, always just out of reach. If you're a little lucky, you might stick with it long enough to see it climb a tree. You'll never catch the damn squirrel, but it'll lead you to a tree. Chasing squirrels is a way to find trees! In math, the trees are called theorems." Terry Gannon, Alberta, winner of the 2000 PIMS Research Prize. Back to the top
