Alejandro Maass appointed CNRS Fellow-Ambassador

Alejandro Maass, principal investigator of the Center for Mathematical Modeling (CMM) and professor of the Department of Mathematical Engineering (DIM) at the University of Chile, has just been honored as “CNRS Fellow-Ambassadeur” by the CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research) of France.

The French institution has decided to create this title starting this year, and it will be granted to outstanding researchers who wish to strengthen their collaborations with the CNRS, its laboratories and its scientists.

For this first year, the CNRS will propose approximately a dozen researchers –from all areas of knowledge– to initiate this highly selective international ambassador program, and Prof. Maass will be among its first members.

Each “CNRS Fellow-Ambassadeur” commits to spend a total of at least three months in CNRS laboratories over a three-year period. As a CNRS ambassadeur, he or she will be able to supervise or participate in the supervision of PhD students, postdocs or young researchers, contributing to the visibility and influence of the French institution.

The appointment comes to recognize the scientific trajectory of Prof. Maass, and to strengthen the cooperation ties of the CMM with French research institutions in pure and applied mathematics.
