Congratulations to Dr. Peter Horak on being named the recipient of the Distinguished Research Award!

Dr. Horak joined the faculty in 2003, contributing to both the Institute of Technology and Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences.  His primary research interests are discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science where he had published some 90 scientific papers.  His most recent work focuses on Cryptography and Coding Theory and connects to a NATO grant, “Secure Implementation of Post-Quantum Cryptography.”  The review committee concluded, “it would be more than enough to excel in only one major area.  To produce exceptionally high quality work in two major fields of scholarship is simply extraordinary."  Dr. Horak is a member of the editorial boards of four journals and has given invited talks in over 25 countries on six continents.
