The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization.
Lutz Warnke is an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Georgia Institute of Technology., whose research focuses on probabilistic combinatorics and random discrete structures. Prof. Warnke research interests include random graphs and processes, phase transitions, and combinatorial probability as well as applications thereof to extremal combinatorics, Ramsey theory, and related areas.
Professor Warnke completed his PhD at the University of Oxford in 2012 under the supervision of Oliver Riordan, and was afterwards elected a junior research fellow in mathematics at Peterhouse College, University of Cambridge.
Professor Warnke's other accolades include 2014 the Richard-Rado-Prize (German Mathematical Society), and in 2016 the Dénes König Prize (SIAM), and his research is supported by NSF grant DMS-1703516, a 2018 Sloan Research Fellowship, and now this 2020 NSF CAREER award.
