Prof. Michael Ruzhansky is a mathematician currently working as a senior professor of mathematics at Ghent University in Belgium and as a professor of mathematics at the Queen Mary University of London. He received his PhD in Mathematics from Utrecht University in the Netherlands in 1998. After short positions at the Johns Hopkins University in the USA and the University of Edinburgh in the UK, he worked at Imperial College London as a Lecturer, Reader, and then from 2010 as a full professor. Prof. Ruzhansky’s research focuses on harmonic analysis, partial differential equations, and microlocal, geometric, and noncommutative analysis. He has made significant contributions to the study of non-commutative Fourier analysis, pseudo-differential operators, and partial differential equations with strong singularities, among other topics. He has also worked on applications of these mathematical techniques to problems in other related areas. In addition to his research, Prof. Ruzhansky serves as an editor for several mathematics journals and book series, and has authored or co-authored over 300 research papers and 8 books. Prof. Michael Ruzhansky has also been recognized with several awards and honors for his contributions to mathematics, including the ISAAC Award in 2007, EPSRC Leadership Fellowship in 2008, Daiwa Adrian Prize in 2010, and Ferran Sunyer I Balaguer Prizes in 2014 and 2018. He was also a recipient of the Odysseus project in 2018 and became a Methusalem Laureate in 2021.
