Svitlana Mayboroda is the Northrop Professor of Mathematics at the University of Minnesota. Her expertise lies in harmonic analysis, geometric measure theory, and partial differential equations, as well as an extended range of applications of these fields ranging from condensed matter physics to materials science to engineering. Her primary achievements include the solution of the Chang-Krantz-Stein conjecture, the boundary regularity theory and the first analogue of the Wiener criterion for higher order PDEs, a complete description of the structure of the harmonic measure, and the foundation of the theory of the localization landscape, together with Marcel Filoche.

Mayboroda’s fundamental contributions to harmonic analysis and PDE have been widely recognized, including by an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship in 2010, a National Science Foundation CAREER award in 2011, and a Fellowship of the Fondation Jacques Hadamard in 2015. In 2014 she received the inaugural award of the AWM-Sadosky Research Prize in Analysis, and, at the young age of 35, in 2015 she was named a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society. Professor Mayboroda currently holds a Simons Fellowship in the Mathematical Sciences and a von Neumann Fellowship at the Institute for Advanced Study. She is also the sole PI of an $800,000 INSPIRE award, being the only mathematician to receive an award under INSPIRE, a program of the NSF to support bold interdisciplinary projects that are larger than a single program. This summer Professor Mayboroda will give an invited talk at the International Congress of Mathematicians.
