2007: Ana Caraiani is a Royal Society University Research Fellow and senior lecturer in mathematics at Imperial Col- lege London. She received a bachelor’s degree at Princeton where her senior thesis advisor was Andrew Wiles. She was a two-time Putnam Fellow and a member of the first place 2006 Putnam Competition Team, the only year Princeton has ever won the team competition. She won the William Lowell Putnam Fellowship for Graduate Study at Harvard, where she received a PhD in 2012 under Richard Taylor. Her research interests include the Langlands program, algebraic number theory, arithmetic geometry, and repre- sentation theory. Caraiani was an L. E. Dickson Instructor and NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at Chicago (2012–2013), a Veblen Research Instructor and NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at Princeton University and the Institute for Advanced Study (2013–2016), and a Bonn Junior Fellow at the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (2016–2017). She has received the Whitehead Prize given by the London Mathematical Soci- ety. Caraiani has nine published papers with three running more than one hundred pages and has given more than one hundred invited talks. A paper she coauthored with nine other authors posted on arXiv in December 2018 ran 193 pages. The website “The Best Schools” has her on a list of “The Top 50 Women in STEM.”
