### Mathematics Professor named American Mathematics Society Fellow

Northeastern University Professor of Mathematics Ivan Losev uses algebra to solve the mechanics of quantum physics and field theory, the results of which can lend answers towards how atoms move and interact with each other. His complex studies in this field have led to being named one of the 2018 fellows of the American Mathematics Society (AMS).
