Boris Hanin


I’m a postdoc in mathematics at MIT interested in probability theory, spectral theory, mathematical physics, and neural nets. I am partly supported by the NSF through a postdoctoral fellowship (DMS-1400822) and am mentored by Alice Guionnet. I recieved my Ph.D. from Northwestern under the direction of Steve Zelditch.
