Professor of Mathematics
Asymptotic Representation Theory, Random Matrices
Alexei Borodin joined the MIT faculty as Professor of Mathematics in
2010. He completed the Diploma from Moscow State University in 1997 and received the PhD under Alexandre Kirillov from the University of
Pennsylvania in 2001. He was a professor at Caltech in 2003-2010.
Borodin studies problems on the interface of representation theory and
probability that link to combinatorics, random matrix theory, and
integrable systems. In 2001 he received a long-term research fellowship of the Clay Mathematics Institute. He was awarded the Prize of the Moscow Mathematical Society in 2003 and the Prize of the European Mathematical Society in 2008. Currently, Professor Borodin co-chairs the Graduate Faculty Committee (beginning Fall 2013).
