Assistant Professor of Mathematics
Algebraic Geometry, Representation Theory
Andrei Negut joined the MIT mathematics faculty in July 2015. His overall program concentrates on problems in geometric representation theory, an area that overlaps studies in algebraic geometry and representation theory. His results connect to areas in mathematical physics, symplectic geometry, combinatorics and probability theory. His current research focuses on moduli of sheaves, quiver varieties, quantum algebras and knot invariants. Negut received the PhD from Columbia University in 2015, studying under Andrei Okounkov. He completed the Master's in mathematics from Harvard in 2012, and the B.A. from Princeton in 2009. He received the 2018 Sloan Research Fellowship.
