Tatiana Toro: 2018 Rubin Lecture

Tatiana Toro is a mathematician working at the interface of geometric measure theory, harmonic analysis and partial differential equations. Her work focuses on understanding mathematical questions that arise in an environment where the known data is very rough.

The main premise of her work is that under the right lens, objects, which at rst glance might appear to be very irregular, do exhibit quanti able regular characteristics.

Toro, who was born in Colombia, received her Ph.D. from Stanford University. Currently she is the Craig McKibben & Sarah Merner Professor in Mathematics at the University of Washington in Seattle. Prior to this she was the Robert R. & Elaine F. Phelps Professor in Mathematics there. Her prior awards include a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, a Simons Foundation Fellowship, an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship, a National Science Foundation Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellowship.

In 2017 she became a Miembro Correspondiente de la Academia Colombiana de Ciencias Exactas, Fisicas y Naturales. She is also a Fellow of the AMS.
