Andrew Neitzke

Associate Professor of Mathematics

Andrew Neitzke joins Yale University’s Department of Mathematics as an Associate Professor in January 2020. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from Harvard University in 2005, and taught in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Texas at Austin from 2010-2019. His research interests are focused on geometric problems arising from physics, particularly from supersymmetric quantum field theory. At the moment he is working on new applications of quantum field theoretic ideas to hyperkahler geometry and to the study of knot invariants.
