Purdue University Northwest Assistant Professor Grethe Hystad has been chosen as the recipient of the 2021 Felix Chayes Prize for Excellence in Research in Mathematical Petrology, which is awarded by the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences. She serves on a research team receiving a grant from the John Templeton Foundation which applies statistics to analyze deep time events that relate to the co-evolution of the geosphere and biosphere. 

“I am honored to have received the 2021 Felix Chayes Prize,” Hystad said. “I am very grateful to my collaborator, the mineralogist, Dr. Robert Hazen at the Earth and Planets Laboratory at the Carnegie Institution for Science and the entire research group for introducing me to very interesting research problems in the intersection of statistics/mathematics, mineralogy, and geosciences. I enjoy bringing the knowledge I have gained and continue to gain through my research to students at Purdue University Northwest.”
