Dustin Clausen, mathematician

Permanent Professor since 2023

Dustin Clausen specializes in algebraic K-theory, finding connections between number theory and homotopy theory. In collaboration with Peter Scholze he has recently developed condensed mathematics, a new theory of analytic geometry, combining algebra and topology.

Dustin Clausen did his undergraduate studies at Harvard university, and obtained his PhD in 2013 from MIT, working on Arithmetic Duality in Algebraic K-theory, under the supervision of Jacob Lurie. He then spent five years as a postdoc in Copenhagen, followed by two years in Bonn, first as a postdoc at the University of Bonn, and then as a research group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics. He moved back to Denmark in 2020 to work as an associate professor at the University of Copenhagen.
