Jeffrey Brock is Professor of Mathematics, and Dean of Science (as of January, 2019). His research focuses on low dimensional geometry and topology, particularly hyperbolic geometry. His work William Thurstonâ€™s program to understand hyperbolic 3-manifolds led to their geometric classification in joint work with R. Canary and Y. Minsky. More recently, he has worked to study renormalized volume and its gradient flow on deformation spaces. He is also interested in geometric and topological methods in analysis of large, complex data sets. He was an undergraduate at Yale, and obtained his Ph.D. at U.C. Berkeley, after which he held positions at Stanford and U. Chicago before moving to the Brown University Math Department, which he Chaired from 2013 to 2017. In 2016 he served as founding Director of Brownâ€™s Data Science Initiative. He was a Guggenheim Fellow in 2008 and was recently elected Fellow of the American Mathematical Society. He joined the Yale faculty in 2018, and he will begin his tenure as the inaugural FAS Dean of Science in January 2019.
