Alex Dunlap's home page


As of Fall 2023, I am an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at Duke University. I study problems in probability theory, partial differential equations, and applied math.

Before coming to Duke, from 2020 to 2023 I was an NSF postdoc at NYU Courant, sponsored by Jean-Christophe Mourrat and Yuri Bakhtin. I completed my Ph.D. at Stanford in 2020, advised by Lenya Ryzhik.
