Abby Rockefeller Mauze Professor of Mathematics
Associate Department Head
Analysis: Dispersive Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations
Gigliola Staffilani is the Abby Rockefeller Mauzé Professor of Mathematics since 2007, and Associate Department Head as of July 2013. She received the B.S. equivalent from the University of Bologna in 1989, and the S.M. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Chicago in 1991 and 95. Carlos Kenig was her doctoral advisor. Following a Szegö Assistant Professorship at Stanford, she had faculty appointments at Stanford, Princeton and Brown (tenured at Stanford and Brown), before joining the MIT mathematics faculty in 2002 as tenured associate professor (professor in 2006). Professor Staffilani is an analyst, with a concentration on dispersive nonlinear PDEs. At Stanford, she received the Harold M. Bacon Memorial Teaching Award in 1997, and was given the Frederick E. Terman Award for young faculty in 1998. She was a Sloan fellow from 2000-02. Professor Staffilani served as co-chair of the Graduate Student Committee in Pure Mathematics from 2009-2013.
