Malwina Luczak awarded Leverhulme International Professorship

The Leverhulme Trust Board is pleased to announce the third and final winner of its 2022 Leverhulme International Professorships. 

Professor Malwina Luczak will join the University of Manchester as a chair in the Department of Mathematics in the School of Natural Sciences; to drive exciting new advances in probability and statistics research and foster wider scientific collaborations within the university.

A world expert in probability theory, Professor Luczak has developed new mathematical techniques to analyse large random systems and their behaviour as the size of the system increases. This allows her to investigate how changes in governing parameters modify the rate at which an equilibrium distribution is approached. 

Professor Anna Vignoles, Director of the Leverhulme Trust, said:

‘The Trust is delighted to award Professor Luczak a Leverhulme International Professorship. Embarking on new advances in probability and statistics research that will have important real-world consequences for epidemic modelling and communication networks is exactly the quality and calibre of research the Trust is proud to support.’
