Jeff wins the Adams Prize

My son, Jeff, is Professor of Mathematics, University College London.

The Adams Prize is described here, and here on Wikipedia.

It’s a Big Deal. To quote the description of it from the University of Cambridge:

The Adams Prize is one of the University’s oldest and most prestigious prizes. The Prize is named after the mathematician John Couch Adams and was endowed by members of St John’s College. It commemorates Adams’s role in the discovery of the planet Neptune, through calculation of the discrepancies in the orbit of Uranus. Previous prize-winners include James Clerk Maxwell, Roger Penrose and Stephen Hawking.

      Indeed I am. But of course, it’s primarily Jeff’s dedication and hard work that realized this. And a maths professor at University of Rochester who told him “You’re too damn good to be [just] an engineer.”
