William Slofstra received his PhD in Mathematics from the University of California, Berkeley in 2011. After spending part of 2012 at the University of British Columbia as a Research Associate, Slofstra returned to California as the Krener Assistant Professor at the University of California, Davis.
His research interests have focused on algebra, specifically in Lie theory/representation theory, Schubert calculus and connected areas, as well as non-local games.
He moved to the University of Waterloo in August 2015 as a Research Assistant Professor at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC), and became an Assistant Professor in 2017.
