Eliran Subag, Ph.D.New York University
Eliran Subag is an incoming postdoctoral researcher at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University. He completed his Ph.D. in mathematics at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel under the supervision of Ofer Zeitouni, with the support of the Adams Fellowship. Prior to that, he received a B.S. and M.S. in electrical engineering from the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, where he worked with Robert Adler.
His research interests are in probability theory, in particular the theory of Gaussian fields and their geometry. His doctoral work focused on spherical spin glasses — models of smooth random functions on the high-dimensional sphere, arising in the mean field theory of disordered magnetic media. Combining tools from the theory of Gaussian fields, large deviations and random matrices, he studied the distribution of the critical points and asymptotic geometric structure of the Gibbs measure of spherical spin glass models, as the dimension tends to infinity.
