Yujin Hong Kim

Welcome! I'm Yujin, a Ph.D. student in mathematics at the Courant Institute of NYU. I am very fortunate to be advised by Eyal Lubetzky and Ofer Zeitouni.

In Fall 2021, I was a Program Associate at the MSRI for ``Universality and Integrability in Random Matrix Theory and Interacting Particle Systems". Before graduate school, I studied mathematics just up the street at Columbia University.

Broadly speaking, I am interested in probability theory and its applications. Currently I am studying branching Brownian motion and (other) log-correlated fields, random matrix theory, and statistical physics. My research is partially supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and a MacCracken Fellowship.

You can reach me at first name [dot] last name [at] courant.nyu.edu. If you're at Courant, visit me in office 811!

Seminars Organized

This semester, I am co-organizing the MSRI Program Associates' Seminar with Weitao Zhu. At Courant, I am co-organizing the Graduate Student/Postdoc Seminar and the Student Probability Seminar. Check them out! If you're interested in speaking at any one of these, please feel free to shoot me an email.
