New Faculty

In 2013 the CUNY Graduate Center Mathematics department appointed a new central line faculty member:

Jeremy Kahn   Hyperbolic Geometry and Complex Dynamics, winner of 2012 Clay Mathematics Prize,   NSF funding (PhD 1995, UC Berkeley),   [Graduate Center, Distinguished Professor]

Other central line faculty in the department are

Alexander Gamburd,
Victor Kolyvagin,
Dennis Sullivan,
Lucien Szpiro


Most of the CUNY GC faculty are appointed to the doctoral faculty after being hired at a CUNY College.   They continue to work with undergraduates at the college where they were hired but now teach doctoral courses and in addtition take on the responsibilities of a doctoral faculty member at the CUNY Graduate Center.  New appointments in mathematics over the past five years are listed below:
