Six math professors recognized as LSU "Rainmakers"

As the LSU Office of Public Affairs tells us, "The metaphorical 'Rainmaker,' a term borrowed from the business parlance, is one whose special skills and efforts bring welcome resources or respect to an organization. In the university context, Rainmakers are those who are nationally and internationally recognized for innovative research and creative scholarship, who compete for external funding at the highest levels and who attract and mentor exceptional graduate students."

Approximately 100 outstanding research and creative faculty are selected as rainmakers.  Congratulations to the LSU Rainmakers in the Mathematics Department:

  • Pramod Achar
  • Susanne Brenner
  • Guoli Ding
  • Robert Lipton
  • Gestur Olafsson
  • Daniel Sage
