** Biography. **
A specialist in probability theory, stochastic processes and partial differential equations, Jeremy Quastel has been at the University of Toronto since 1998.
A native of Canada, he studied at McGill University, then the Courant Institute (NYU) where he completed his PhD in 1990 under the direction of S.R.S. Varadhan.
He was a postdoctoral fellow at the Mathematical Sciences Research
Institute in Berkeley, then was a faculty at UCDavis until he returned to Canada in 1998. His research is on the large scale behaviour of interacting particle systems and stochastic partial differential equations, recently concentrating on the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang universality class, where he and collaborators discovered the first exact solutions of the KPZ equation, the polymer endpoint distribution, and, more recently the general solution of the model TASEP, and through it the fixed point of the universality class.
He was a Sloan Fellow (1996-98), invited session speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians (2010),
gave the Current Developments in Mathematics (2011) and St. Flour lectures (2012),
was plenary speaker at the International Congress of Mathematical Physics (2012), Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada (2016) and
of the Royal Society (2021),
and won the CRM-Fields-PIMS prize (2018) and the Jeffery-Williams Prize of the Canadian Mathematical Society (2019).
He was Chair of the Department of Mathematics 2017-2021.
