Kavita Ramanan is the Roland George Dwight Richardson University Professor and Associate Chair at the Division of Applied Mathematics, Brown University, and Associate Director at the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) at Brown University. Her research interests lie in probability theory and stochastic processes, and she has made fundamental contributions to high-dimensional probability, interacting particle systems, large deviations, with applications to asymptotic convex geometry and stochastic networks. She is an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and her research has received recognition in the form of a Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellowship, a Simon Guggenheim Fellowship, the Newton Award from the Department of Defense (DoD), a Simons Fellowship, and the Erlang Prize from the INFORMS Applied Probability Society. She also runs a math outreach group called the Math CoOp.
