Karen
Vogtmann


(Warwick/Cornell)

Karen Vogtmann has made notable contributions to the areas of topology and algebra. She is known especially for introducing new topological and geometric models for the study of infinite discrete groups. Her work has influences in several mathematical disciplines, including algebraic K-theory, homotopy theory, and tropical algebraic geometry, as well as to various subjects including the study of phylogenetic trees and perturbative quantum field theory. Karen Vogtmann is currently professor of mathematics at the University of Warwick and Goldwin Smith Professor of Mathematics Emeritus at Cornell University. She was awarded the Polya prize, a Humboldt Research Prize, a Royal Society Wolfson Research award, an honorary degree from the University of Copenhagen. In 2012 she became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society. She was elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 2021. Before moving to Warwick, she served as the Vice President of the American Mathematical Society.
