Rose-Hulman Assistant Professor of Mathematics Will Green recently was named one of five 2014 Young Alumni Award winners at Michigan’s Albion College.

Green, a 2005 Albion graduate, has been a member of Rose-Hulman's faculty since 2010. He has presented mathematics and mathematics/physics research at regional and national conferences, and has published in some of the world’s top mathematics journals.

Green was recently invited to the selective American Mathematical Society Research Communities program in partial differential equations, harmonic analysis, complex analysis, and geometric measure theory. He serves as a peer reviewer of graduate and undergraduate mathematical research published in Mathematical Review. He also works with undergraduate researchers who want to co-publish refereed solutions to problems posed to the national mathematics community.

"Current students are often inspired by the accomplishments of alumni established in careers with many years of experience," says Elinor Marsh, Albion’s executive director of alumni engagement. "But it is equally important for our students, and Albion College, to recognize the tremendous accomplishments of our alumni who have achieved notable success quickly following graduation."

Joining Green among Albion's 2014 Young Alumni Award honorees were planetary science researcher Andrew Beck, U.S. Army pediatrician and medical missionary Daniella Frank, Detroit-area entrepreneur Steve Gordon, and Grand Haven community development manager Jennifer Swindlehurst Howland.

Albion College is a private liberal arts college located in south central Michigan.
