Dino J. Lorenzini
Distinguished Research Professor 2006
Dino J. Lorenzini, Professor of Mathematics, has derived novel intuitions, techniques and theory from work in difficult areas of mathematics. He produced a new mathematical structure called the Lorenzini filtration, and subsequently was able to apply this discovery to different questions in number theory. He has established himself as a central figure in the education of the next generation of Ph.D.s in number theory, and has published four consecutive articles in Inventiones Mathematicae – the mathematical equivalent of the journal Nature.
