Evan Sorensen

Office: 101 Van Vleck


I am a fifth-year mathematics PhD student at the University of Wisconsin—Madison. My advisor is Prof. Timo Seppäläinen. My area of research lies in the theory of probability and stochastic processes. In particular, I am interested in the central objects of the KPZ universality class, as well as their known and conjectured prelimiting models such as first-and last-passage percolation and polymers. I received an MA in mathematics from UW-Madison in 2020 and a BS in mathematics from Brigham Young University in 2017.


I am on the job market in Fall 2022, seeking an academic position for Fall 2023.
