Landau receives Bertrand Russell Prize
The American Mathematical Society (AMS) recently recognized Bridge Professor Susan Landau with the 2024 Bertrand Russell Prize for writing technical research papers and op-eds, publishing public-facing work, briefing policymakers, and participating in national studies. AMS lauded Landau as a leading scholar in encryption policy and digital privacy and honored her for making technical information about digital privacy and encryption accessible to policymakers.
The Bertrand Russell Prize was established to award leading mathematicians or related professionals that work for the greater good in the world. It is awarded by the American Mathematical Society, a prestigious professional network that connects mathematics communities across the globe and advances mathematics research.
At Tufts University, Susan Landau is a bridge professor in the School of Engineering’s Department of Computer Science and at The Fletcher School. She is an internationally-recognized expert working at the intersection of cyber security, national security, law, and policy.
“I feel greatly privileged to receive this award and thank the AMS and the Bertrand Russell Prize Committee for this honor,” says Landau.
