Israel Gelfand Chair
Samson Shatashvili is the director of the Hamilton Mathematical Institute at the Trinity College, Dublin where he holds the University Chair of Natural Philosophy (1847). He was holder of the Louis Michel Chair at IHES from 2003 to 2013.
His area of research is mathematical physics, especially gauge theory, string theory and supersymmetry. In particular, he has developed with N. Nekrasov a theory of integrability in gauge theories and their link to the Bethe-Correspondance. His current research on the relation between supersymmetric gauge theories and quantum integrable systems obtained recent results, in collaboration with N. Nekrasov and V. Pestun.
