**February 22, 2019** - ICERM is delighted to share the news that Melody Chan, Brown University math professor, has been awarded the prestigious #NSF Career award, from the Division Of Mathematical Sciences. Melody was a research fellow during ICERM's fall 2018 Nonlinear Algebra program and is organizing two programs in the coming years.

"The research supported by this award will center on using modern degeneration techniques, especially those from the field of tropical geometry, to study classical spaces from algebraic geometry....This award will also support a Women in Algebraic Geometry workshop and a seminar series on diversity and inclusion in mathematics."
