Ewain Gwynne

I am a postdoc in mathematics at University of Cambridge, supported by both a Herchel Smith fellowship and a junior research fellowship at Trinity college. Starting in July 2019, I will be supported by a Clay research fellowship.

I got my Ph.D from MIT in 2018, advised by Scott Sheffield. Previously, I was an undergraduate student at Northwestern University. During the summer of 2015, I was an intern in the Microsoft Research theory group in Redmond, WA.

I am interested in probability theory, particularly random curves and surfaces which arise in statistical mechanics. Topics I have worked on include Schramm-Loewner evolution, Liouville quantum gravity, random planar maps, first passage percolation, and Brownian surfaces.

Here is a non-technical summary of my research aimed at an audience with some scientific background, not necessarily in math.
