Principal Research Scientist
Computational Number Theory
Andrew Sutherland received an S.B. in mathematics from MIT in 1990. Following a successful career as an entrepreneur in the software industry, he returned to MIT, completing his Ph.D. in mathematics in 2007 under the supervision of Michael Sipser and Ronald Rivest. He was awarded the George M. Sprowles Prize for his thesis.
After joining the MIT Department of Mathematics as a research scientist in 2009, Sutherland was promoted to principal research scientist in 2012. His research focuses on computational number theory and he was recently awarded the Selfridge Prize for his work in this area.
