Marcus Michelen

Assistant Professor

I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I received my Ph.D. in mathematics in 2019 from the University of Pennsylvania where my advisor was Robin Pemantle. I completed my Bachelor of Science in Engineering at The Cooper Union in 2014, where I majored in General Engineering and minored in Mathematics.

My research is in probability, combinatorics and the geometry of polynomials. Lately my research has focused on random matrices, random polynomials, and Gibbs point processes. My work is supported in part by NSF grant DMS-2137623.
