Department of Mathematics and the College
Daniil Rudenko is a mathematician who is working on periods of mixed Tate motives. He aims to understand the hidden relations between integrals of rational functions from the modern perspective. Classical polylogarithms and volumes of non-Euclidean polytopes are examples of such integrals.
Rudenko earned a PhD in mathematics at the National Research University Higher School of Economics in Moscow, as well as an MA in mathematics from the University of Cambridge and a BS in mathematics from Saint Petersburg State University. Most recently, he was an L. E. Dickson Instructor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Chicago.
