Hurah!!I've got some excellent news:
I was co-awarded the
2012 Presburger Award, to be shared with Venkat Guruswami ,the young superstar of error correcting codes.
In short, the Presburger Award is the European "young-scientist award" in Theory.
It is given anually by the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS)
to a scientist under 35 "for outstanding contributions in
Theoretical Computer Sciene as documented by a series of published papers."
Not surprisingly, I got the award for my work on data-structure lower bounds.The citation has a lot of nice things to say. Go read it :)
