Brandon Seward is an assistant professor at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University. Prior to NYU, he was a postdoc at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in 2015, under the supervision of Ralf Spatzier.
His research falls into the areas of group theory, dynamics and descriptive set theory. Seward’s work finds inspiration in the connection between groups and the structure of their actions. He studies countable groups from a geometric and combinatorial perspective, as well as group actions from the perspectives of ergodic theory, topological dynamics and Borel dynamics.
