|Ivan Corwin is a professor of mathematics at Columbia University, as well as a member of the Irving Center for Cancer Dynamics, Probability and Society Initiative, Program for Mathematical Genomics, Quantum Initiative, and a member of the executive committee for the Data Science Institute, all at Columbia. He is also on the scientific advisory board for the NSF-funded Institute for Computations and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) and Mathematical Science Research Institute (MSRI). Ivan studies aspects of probability and mathematical physics including random interface growth, interacting particle systems, random matrix theory and stochastic partial differential equations. He received his PhD from the Courant Institute i n 2011 and has since held positions at Microsoft Research, MIT, Institut Henri Poincare (at the Poincare Chair), U.C. Berkeley (as a Visiting Miller Professor), and Columbia. He has held a Clay Research Fellowship, a Packard Fellowship, and Simons Fellowship, a Schramm Fellowship and is a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society and of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. He was the recipient of the 2021 Loeve prize in probability, 2018 Alexanderson Award, 2014 Rollo Davidson Prize, 2012 Young Scientist Prize of the I UPAP, and gave an invited lecture at the 2014 International Congress of Mathematicians.
