2017 Clay Research Fellows

Thursday, February 16, 2017

The Clay Mathematics Institute is pleased to announce that Peter Hintz and Akhil Mathew have been awarded Clay Research Fellowships.  

Peter Hintz studies hyperbolic partial differential equations arising in general relativity using methods from microlocal analysis, spectral and scattering theory, and dynamical systems. He obtained his PhD at Stanford in 2015, advised by András Vasy.

Akhil Mathew's research focuses on homotopy theory, higher categories, and their applications. He is currently in his final year as a graduate student at Harvard University, working under the supervision of Jacob Lurie.

Clay Research Fellowships are awarded on the basis of the exceptional quality of candidates' research and their promise to become mathematical leaders.
