Yair Shenfeld is an Assistant Professor of Applied Mathematics at Brown University. Previously, he was a C.L.E. Moore instructor and an NSF postdoctoral fellow in the Mathematics department at MIT. He completed his PhD at Princeton University under the supervision of Ramon van Handel, and received his B.Sc. from MIT.
Dr. Shenfeld’s work in high-dimensional probability and its interactions with analysis, geometry, and mathematical physics. His current research interests include stochastic analysis and functional inequalities, optimal transport, and renormalization group methods. He is also interested in extremal problems in convex geometry.
