Assistant Professor Oleksandr Tsymbaliuk to join faculty in August 2020


Oleksandr (Sasha) Tsymbaliuk will join the Department of Mathematics as a new tenure-track assistant professor in August 2020. 

He received Master degree in Mathematics from Moscow State University and Independent University of Moscow in 2009, and then went to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for graduate studies, where he obtained a Ph.D. in Mathematics in 2014 under the direction of Prof. Pavel Etingof.  From 2014-2017 he was a Research Assistant Professor at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, and then served as a Gibbs Assistant Professor at the Yale University from 2017-2020.  He has been a frequent invited researcher to MPIM (Bonn), IHES (France), and RIMS (Kyoto). His research has been supported by numerous National Science Foundation awards. 

Prof. Tsymbaliuk's research is primarily concerned with various topics in representation theory, motivated by questions in algebraic geometry and integrable systems. He specializes in the study of shifted quantum groups. affine Yangians and quantum toroidal algebras, with applications to the study of Coulomb branches and Toda-like integrable systems. 

He is very excited to discuss all mathematics with students and faculty.
