From quiver representations to cluster algebras

Weyman got his Ph.D. in Mathematics from Brandeis University in 1980. His interests include several branches of algebra: Commutative Algebra, Algebraic Geometry, Representation Theory and Invariant Theory. After working for five years at the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, he joined the faculty of Northeastern University in Boston. Since 2013, he is Joan and Stuart Sydney Professor of Mathematics at the University of Connecticut. Professor Weyman was the recipient of the Kuratowski Prize of the Polish Mathematical Society in 1983. He was awarded the Humboldt Research Prize in 2011. He was the recipient of the 2015 Wacław Sierpiński Medal of the Polish Mathematical Society which is given out annually to recognize Polish mathematicians for their outstanding work and scientific achievements in their fields.
