Meet Fulbright Professor Clark Barwick

Friday 9th October, 2015

Three academics from America will be studying at the University of Glasgow as part of the Fulbright Scholarship Programme. Clark is one of the three and is based within our School during his visit.

Clark Barwick was raised in the southeastern US. He earned his undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina in 2001 and his doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania in 2005.

He held postdoctoral positions at the University of Göttingen, the University of Oslo, the Institute for Advanced Study, and Harvard University.

Today, he is Cecil and Ida Green Associate Professor of Mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His work lies at the intersection of homotopy theory, higher category theory, and algebraic geometry.

He enjoys laughing with his partner Alexandra Sear and hurling spheres for their dog Maggie.

During his visit, Clark will be based in room 308 of the Maths Building.
