The Department of Mathematics will honor first-year Dain Kim and junior Qi Qi at a spring awards dinner celebrating the high-scoring participants of December’s William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition. Qi was one of three recipients for the 2019 Elizabeth Lowell Putnam Prize, given to top female contestants. She is the fourth MIT student to receive this honor since the award began in 1992.
Another Elizabeth Lowell Putnam recipient, Harvard’s Laura Pierson, is also an alumni of the Department of Mathematics’ PRIMES program.
