Jitomirskaya BIOGRAPHY: Svetlana Jitomirskaya is working on dynamical systems and mathematical physics. She obtained her Ph.D. from Moscow State University in 1991. She joined the mathematics department at the University of California, Irvine where she became a full professor in 2000. She is best known for solving the “Ten Martini Problem” along with mathematician Artur Ávila. In 2005, she was awarded the Ruth Lyttle Satter Prize in Mathematics, “for her pioneering work on nonperturbative quasiperiodic localization.” She was an invited speaker at the 2002 International Congress of Mathematicians, in Beijing. She received a Sloan Fellowship in 1996. In 2018 she was named to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
