Mikhail M. Ivanov

NASA Einstein Fellow @ IAS
I am a theoretical physicist and data analyst working in cosmology and black hole physics.


I obtained my PhD from the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) under the supervision of Sergey Sibiryakov in 2019. During my PhD studies, I spent one year at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton NJ as a fellow of the Swiss National Science Foundation. After that I was a postdoctoral associate at New York University and a NASA Einstein fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study.

I will start as an assistant professor at the MIT Center for Theoretical Physics in July 2023.

Research interests:

Most of the time, I study cosmological structure formation. I have developed a first-principle theoretical description of gravitational clustering and use it to extract new information about our universe from large-scale structure data. I am also interested in black hole physics and gravitational wave science.
