Daniel Wise elected to the Royal Society of Canada  Class of 2014
Daniel Wise, Professor at McGill University and a member of the CRM, has been elected to the Royal Society of Canada.
He is one of the two mathematicians in the 2014 class of fellows. Professor Wise is cited for his fundamental contributions to geometric group theory and low dimensional topology that "...stand at the core of the most important development in geometry and topology since the proof of the Poincaré Conjecture, namely the proof of Thurston’s virtually fibered conjecture for hyperbolic threemanifolds."
