Nick Battista selected for Emerging Leaders in Science & Society

Congratulations to Carolina Mathematics Ph.D. student Nick Battista for his recent selection to to the Emerging Leaders in Science & Society (ELISS) class of 2016. The class of 2016 is the third year of the ELISS program, bringing together outstanding graduate and professional students from partner campuses (the class of 2016 drawing from Duke, Purdue, UC-Irvine, UW-Seattle, and UNC-Chapel Hill) to participate in a 15-month leadership development experience preparing students to cross disciplinary boundaries for the benefit of society.

Nick Battista is the first mathematician selected to the program. Indeed, we have it on good authority that Nick is the first math student to even make it past the first round of the selection process.

Congratulations, Nick!
