2020 Clay Research Fellows

Wednesday, February 26, 2020


The Clay Mathematics Institute is pleased to announce that Amol Aggarwal and Yang Li have been awarded Clay Research Fellowships.

Amol Aggarwal will receive his PhD in 2020 from Harvard University, where he has been advised by Alexei Borodin. His research lies largely in probability theory and combinatorics, as well as their connections to mathematical physics, integrable systems, and dynamical systems.

Yang Li received his PhD in 2019 from Imperial College London, under the guidance of Simon Donaldson and Mark Haskins. He has made significant contributions to the understanding of Calabi-Yau metrics in complex differential geometry and Riemannian manifolds with exceptional holonomy. 

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