Travis Schedler is an instructor in mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he holds a five-year fellowship from the American Institute of Mathematics (AIM). Schedler was the sole recipient of the 2008 AIM Fellowship, an award that is “intended for an absolutely first-rate new Ph.D. -- someone with the potential to leave a lasting mark on mathematics.” The fellowship supports one outstanding new Ph.D. pursuing research in an area of pure mathematics, and covers 60 months of full-time research as well as funds for travel and equipment. Schedler has written or co-authored 19 research articles, including one that appeared in the Journal of the American Mathematical Society and another in the Duke Mathematical Journal. He has given lectures at seminars and conferences at major universities in the US, Canada, and Europe. He also has mentored several undergraduates as well as an IMSA student, and has helped direct undergraduate reading and research programs at MIT and the University of Chicago. Schedler is fluent in French, an accomplished keyboard musician (piano and organ) and a triathlete. Schedler is a graduate of Harvard University and the University of Chicago, and spent a year at the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris.
