This program is funded by the generous gift of Professor Michael Brin in 2005. Professor Brin is an emeritus professor of mathematics at the University of Maryland. The Brin Postdoctoral program supports mathematicians who have recently completed or will soon complete a doctorate in mathematics or a closely related field, and whose work shows remarkable promise in mathematical research. The appointments are for one to three years, with a minimal teaching requirement of up to one course per semester.

Current Brin Postdoctoral Fellows

  • Fei Wang (PhD 2017, University of Southern California).  Works in PDEs.  His mentor is Professor Jacob Bedrossian (2017-).
  • Changguang Dong (PhD 2018, Penn State).  Studies dynamics, including the density of iterates of infinite sets.  His mentors incldude Professors Giovanni Forni and Adam Kanigowski
  • Xuemiao Chen is a geometer, a student of Song Sun from SUNY Stony Brook. He works on Yang-Mills connections, sheaves on complex manifolds, and the Harder-Narasimhan-Seshadri filtration. His mentor will be Richard Wentworth.
  • Yijing Wu is a student of Luis Caffarelli at the University of Texas in PDE theory. Her undergraduate degree is from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China. Her research is about regularity properties of non-local elliptic operators and free boundary problems related to the calculus of variations. Her mentor will be Antoine Mellet.
  • Agnieszka Zelerowicz is a student of Yakov Pesin at Penn State, working on dynamical systems and the thermodynamic formalism. Her undergraduate degree is from Białystok, Poland. She will work with Dima Dolgopyat.
