Princeton University’s Ludovic Tangpi Wins an American Mathematical Society Fellowship

Ludovic Tangpi, an assistant professor in the department of operations research and financial engineering at Princeton University in New Jersey, has been awarded the Claytor-Gilmer Fellowship from the American Mathematical Society. The year-long fellowship was established to further excellence in mathematics research and to help generate wider and sustained participation by Black mathematicians.

The AMS Claytor-Gilmer Fellowship is typically conferred on one individual per year. Awardees may use the fellowship in any way that most effectively enables their research — for instance, for release time, participation in research programs, travel support, childcare, etc. The fellowship is named for William Schieffelin Claytor and Gloria Ford Gilmer, the first African American man and woman to publish research articles in peer-reviewed mathematics journals.

Dr. Tangpi’s research interests span applied probability, stochastic control, and their applications in quantitative finance, including risk management, super hedging, and large population games.

Dr. Tangpi is a graduate of the University of Yaounde in Cameroon. He holds a master’s degree from Stellenbosch University in South Africa and did his Ph.D. work jointly at Humboldt University in Berlin and the University of Konstanz in Germany. He later was a postdoctoral fellow in mathematics at the University of Vienna.
