Malabika Pramanik's Research

Areas of interest


I got my Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of California, Berkeley, under the guidance of Prof. Michael Christ. I was a Van Vleck visiting assistant professor at University of Wisconsin, Madison (2001-2004), visiting assistant professor at the University of Rochester (Fall 2004), and a Fairchild Senior Research Fellow at Caltech (January 2005 - August 2006). I joined the Mathematics Department at UBC in Fall 2006. (For more details, here is a copy of my CV in PDF format).
