Most Recent Prize: 2017 – Laura DeMarco was awarded the 2017 Satter Prize for her fundamental contributions to complex dynamics, potential theory, and the emerging field of arithmetic dynamics.

About this Prize: This prize was established in 1990 using funds donated by Joan S. Birman in memory of her sister, Ruth Lyttle Satter. Professor Birman requested that the prize be established to honor her sister's commitment to research and to encourage women in science. An anonymous benefactor added to the endowment in 2008.
