Alexei Borodin (Russian: Алексе́й Бороди́н; born June 25, 1975) is Professor of Mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Before joining the Caltech faculty, he was a Clay Research Fellow and a researcher at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey.
His research concerns asymptotic representation theory, relations with random matrices and integrable systems, and the difference equation formulation of monodromy. In 2010, he was one of four Caltech faculty invited to present their work at the International Congress of Mathematicians.
Borodin graduated from Moscow State University in 1997 and received M.S.E. in computers and information science and Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Pennsylvania.
In 2008, Borodin won the European Mathematical Society Prize, one of ten prizes awarded every four years for excellence by a young mathematics researcher.
