Akhil Mathew
I am a Clay Research Fellow
at the University of Chicago. For fall 2018 I am also a visiting assistant professor here, and in spring 2019 I will be based at MSRI.
My research
is primarily in algebraic topology and its interactions with algebraic geometry
and algebraic Ktheory.
I completed my PhD in mathematics in May 2017 at
Harvard University, where my advisor was Jacob Lurie.
From MayAugust 2015 and OctoberNovember 2016, I was a guest at the Hausdorff Institute of Mathematics in Bonn.
For the 20142015 academic year, I was a graduate student at the University of California at Berkeley.
