Lillian Pierce, the Nicholas J. and Theresa M. Leonardy Associate Professor of Mathematics, is one of six Duke faculty selected as a member into Duke's Bass Society of Fellows this year. Pierce is one of the leading mathematicians working on the interface of number theory and analysis. She is known by her students for her vast knowledge and ability to share this knowledge, as well as being accessible and dedicated to their learning and success.
Membership in the Bass Society of Fellows is one of Duke's highest honors, recognizing remarkable dedication to teaching undergraduates and involvement in cutting edge research. Being part of the Bass Society provides an opportunity for professors across the university to meet and develop creative ways to bring together diverse disciplines. Bass professors become lifetime members of the Bass Society of Fellows after five years; there have been 92 members since its inception in 1996.
