Three students recently received the Peter Baddoo Community Building Award, for individuals who have made significant contributions to building and strengthening our MIT Math community.
Senior Chirag Falor was awarded for his work as the Undergraduate Mathematics Association Social Chair. “From organizing study groups and workshops to coordinating social activities, Chirag has consistently put in tremendous effort to ensure that students feel supported and connected,” says one nominator.
Graduate students Nitya Mani and Serina Hu received this award for their work in organizing the department retreat, which usually is the work of at least five people. Congratulations, Chirag, Serina, and Nitya!
This award is named in honor of Peter Baddoo, a Department instructor who was 29 when he died on February 15. Baddoo received the Community Building Award in 2022 for helping to organize tea and coffee hours for the postdoc community.
