Department Welcomes 11 New Faculty Members
The Department of Mathematics welcomes 11 new faculty members this fall. The new group includes three senior lecturers and eight postdoctoral fellows.
The three senior lecturers are Henry Chan, José Gil-Férez, and Alice Mark.
Henry Chan received his Ph.D. in 2017 from the University of Chicago. His research interests are in algebraic K-theory, topological Hochschild homology, and topological cyclic homology — of both ordinary rings and ring spectra — in equivariant settings.
José Gil-Férez’s research interests are in non-classical logics, universal algebra, algebraic logic, and residuated lattices. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Barcelona in 2009.
Alice Mark received her Ph.D. in 2015 from the University of Texas, Austin. Her research interests are in reflection groups, arithmetic lattices in Lie groups, hyperbolic geometry, integral lattices, and quadratic forms.
Eight new postdoctoral fellows also joined the department:
Simon André received his Ph.D. from the University of Rennes 1 in 2019. His research interests lie at the intersection of geometric group theory and model theory.
Angelica Babei’s research interests comprise a blend of algebraic number theory, combinatorial and computer algebra methods. Specific areas include Bruhat-Tits buildings, orders in central simple algebras, and classical and Hilbert modular forms. She received her Ph.D. from Dartmouth College in 2019.
Mitchell Faulk received his Ph.D. from Columbia University in 2019. His research interests are in complex geometry, Kähler geometry, and canonical metrics.
James Hateley’s research interests are in computational partial differential equations and computational physics, specifically asymptotic analysis, semi-classical methods, and Galarkin methods. He received his Ph.D. in 2019 from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
Jocelyne Ishak received her Ph.D. in 2019 from the University of Kent in the United Kingdom. Her research interests are in algebraic topology, stable homotopy theory, and chromatic homotopy theory.
Ivan Medri’s research interests are in control and sampling theory. He Received his Ph.D. from the National University of Córdoba in Argentina in 2018.
Lauren Ruth’s research interests are in von Neumann algebras, lattices in Lie groups, and representation theory. She received her Ph.D. in 2018 from the University of California, Riverside.
Ian Wagner received his Ph.D. from Emory University in 2019. His research interest is in number theory and more specifically modular forms, harmonic Maass forms, and L-functions.
