Ben Andrews (mathematician)

Ben Andrews is a Senior Fellow at the Centre for Mathematics and its Applications at the Australian National University.[1] He is known for contributions to geometric analysis, with a majority of his work being in the field of extrinsic geometric flows. He received his Ph.D. from Australian National University in 1993, under the supervision of Gerhard Huisken.[2] As of 2020, he has had eight Ph.D. students.

In 2002, he was an inviter speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians. In 2003, he received the Australian Mathematical Society Medal, along with Andrew Hassell, for distinguished research in the mathematical sciences.[3] In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.[4]
