Jeffrey Adler Professor Mathematics & Statistics
 Degrees
 PhD, Mathematics, The University of Chicago
 Bio
 Jeffrey Adler conducts research mainly in harmonic analysis and representation theory (which can be thought of as the study of symmetry from a formal point of view), and also occasionally supervises undergraduate research projects in other areas. Among his nonprofessional interests are string quartets, urban development, etc.
