Dr. Frederico Bonetto promoted to Full Professor

Before joining Georgia Tech as Assistant Professor in 2002,  Dr. Federico Bonetto was a member of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. He previously earned his bachelor degree from the University of Pisa in 1991 and his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University ”La Sapienza” of Rome in 1997.  Dr. Bonetto was promoted to Associate Professor in 2007. His research focuses on mathematical aspects of statistical mechanics with expertise in both dynamical systems and probability theory. His work covers both theoretical understanding of thermal or electric conduction and practical applications in economics dynamics, solid state physics, and novel materials. 


Dr. Galyna Livshyts promoted to Associate Professor with tenure

Dr. Galyna Livshyts joined Georgia Tech as Assistant Professor in SoM in 2015, after receiving her Bachelor’s degree from Kharkiv State University (2009) and her PhD from Kent State University (2015). In Fall 2017, she held a postdoctoral position at MSRI’s Geometric and Functional Analysis program.  Her research focuses on asymptotic analysis, convex geometry and random matrix theory,  presently supported through a NSF CAREER Award. Dr. Livshyts has co-founded the High-Dimensional Seminar and the Online Asymptotic Geometric Analysis seminar, co-organizes the Analysis seminar in SoM, and has organized several conferences. 


Dr. Lutz Warnke promoted to Associate Professor with tenure

Before Dr. Lutz Warnke joined GT in 2016, he received his undergraduate degree  from ETH Zurich (2009), and his PhD from University of Oxford (2012). and was a Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge. Dr. Warnke's research accomplishments in probabilistic combinatorics and random graph theory have been recognized by the 2014 Richard Rado Prize, the 2016 Denes Konig Prize, a 2018 Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship, and a 2020 NSF CAREER award. His teaching efforts at GT have been recognized  by a Class of 1969 Teaching Fellowship and a Class of 1940 Course Survey Teaching Effectiveness Award.


Dr. Yao Yao promoted to Associate Professor with tenure

Dr. Yao started her tenure-track position at Georgia Tech in Fall 2015, after receiving her PhD in Mathematics from UCLA in 2012, and holding a Van Vleck Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison during 2012-2015. Her research is in the area of nonlinear partial differential equations, and has been supported by three NSF research grants, including a NSF CAREER Award.  Dr. Yao also received a Sloan Fellowship in 2020. She advises and mentors PhD students in SoM and the GT-QBioS program,  as well as a postdoc in SoM.
