Prof. Guozhen Lu Awarded Simons Fellowship

Professor Guozhen Lu has been awarded a prestigious Simons Fellowship in 2023 by the Simons Foundation for his project “Multiparameter harmonic analysis, Helgason-Fourier analysis on hyperbolic and symmetric spaces and sharp geometric and functional inequalities”.

According to the foundation website, these awards are based on the applicant’s scientific accomplishments in the five-year period preceding the application and on the potential scientific impact of the work to be done during the leave period.

Professor Lu joins a select group of individuals to be awarded a second Simons Fellowship, having received it previously in 2015. The full list of 2023 awardees is available here.

Professor Lu will use this fellowship to visit collaborators and to continue his work with them and with his PhD students on geometric and functional inequalities, harmonic analysis and PDEs on hyperbolic and symmetric spaces.
