Maria Mikhail Gordina (born January 13, 1968)[1] is a mathematician from Saint Petersburg, Russia.[2] She is a professor of mathematics at the University of Connecticut,[3] a Humboldt Research Fellow, the 2009–2010 winner of the Ruth I. Michler Memorial Prize of the Association for Women in Mathematics,[4] and a Simons Fellow.[2] Her research involves mathematical analysis, including the study of heat kernels on infinite-dimensional groups.[4]

Gordina is the daughter of a mathematician and a software engineer.[2] She earned a diploma in 1990 from Leningrad State University, and became an assistant professor at the Leningrad Electrotechnical Institute.[3] She completed her doctorate in 1998 from Cornell University; her dissertation, Holomorphic functions and the heat kernel measure on an infinite dimensional complex orthogonal group, was supervised by Leonard Gross.[3][5] After postdoctoral research at the University of California, San Diego, she joined the University of Connecticut faculty in 2003.[3]
