FACULTY AWARD: Daubechies wins Franklin Award

Ingrid Daubechies, Princeton's William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of Mathematics and Applied and Computational Mathematics, has been named a recipient of the Benjamin Franklin Medal in Electrical Engineering. Daubechies was recognized for her "fundamental discoveries in the field of compact representations of data, leading to efficient image compression as used in digital photography," according to the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, which bestows the award. She will be honored along with other medal recipients at the institute's awards ceremony in April.
