Maksym Radziwill

PhD, Stanford University


Maksym Radziwill received his PhD from Stanford University in 2013. After postdoctoral positions at the Institute for Advanced Study and Rutgers University, he held faculty positions at McGill University, the California Institute of Technology and the University of Texas at Austin. In 2023, Radziwill joined Northwestern as the Wayne and Elizabeth Jones Professor of Mathematics.

Radziwill works in number theory, especially multiplicative number theory and the analytic theory of L-functions and automorphic forms. He is also interested in the interplay of number theory with other areas of mathematics, including the spectral theory of hyperbolic manifolds, probability theory (in particular, branching random walks) and dynamics.

Radziwill’s awards include the 2016 SASTRA Ramanujan Prize, a 2017 Sloan Fellowship, the 2018 Coxeter-James Prize, the 2018 Ribenboim Prize, the 2019 New Horizons Prize in Mathematics, the 2019 Stefan Banach Prize and the 2023 Cole Prize in Number Theory.
