Dr. Mark Lawrence joined the Mathematics Department in 2011. He received his Ph.D from the University of Washington in 1991. His research interests are in function theory of several complex variables, with an emphasis on problems of polynomial convexity and polynomial hulls, analytic continuation and related topics. He proved the first boundary version of the 100 year old Hartogs separate analyticity theorem, published in 2007; last year a more general theorem was proved, and the manuscript is available on arxiv.
