Stanford Mathematics Professor András Vasy was appointed as the new Robert Grimmet Professor in Mathematics. A named professorship is the School of Humanities and Science's way of honoring one of our most distinguished faculty members. This recognition signals to the world beyond Stanford Vasy's achievement and the University's ongoing commitment to his field of inquiry and teaching. 

Professor Vasy has been a member of the Stanford Mathematics Department since 2008.  Vasy works on Partial Differential Equations, which describe a variety of physical phenomena. His work has contributed to the fundamental understanding of scattering  theory, which looks at the intersection of of PDEs over time and provides a framework for the study of particle and wave scattering.
