Brown’s Kenyon joins academy of top thinkers

Posted 5/12/14

PROVIDENCE – Brown University mathematics professor Richard Kenyon has been selected to join the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Founded in 1780, the Cambridge, Mass.-based honorary society includes the world’s leading thinkers in scholarship and science, public affairs and business, arts and humanities.

Kenyon’s primary area of research is in statistical mechanics. In studying how systems made of many particles behave, he develops mathematical models that describe when water turns to ice, for instance, or when a disease moves from isolation to epidemic.

He earned his Ph.D. from Princeton in 1990 and has held positions at l’Institut des Hautes Etudes Scientifiques and Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in France, as well as the University of British Columbia. He joined the faculty at Brown in 2007. •
