160 of the Fields Institute (1994–96). Most recently, his research interests are in studying free boundary value problems that arise in a wide variety of applications such as solidification, reservoir dynamics, waste remediation, and finance. Alison Conway began her career in theatre at age 18, and thereafter worked with Livent Inc., Mirvish Productions, the National Arts Centre, the Stratford Festival, and the National Ballet before moving into cultural administration. In 1999, she began a second career at the Fields Institute, where her interest in architecture grew out of her love for the light and space at 222 College Street. Today, she is completing studies in architectural restoration. Derek G.
