Maria Mikhail Gordina (born January 13, 1968) is a mathematician from Saint Petersburg, Russia. She is a professor of mathematics at the University of Connecticut, a Humboldt Research Fellow, the 2009–2010 winner of the Ruth I. Michler Memorial Prize of the Association for Women in Mathematics, and a Simons Fellow. Her research involves mathematical analysis, including the study of heat kernels on infinite-dimensional groups.
Gordina is the daughter of a mathematician and a software engineer. She earned a diploma in 1990 from Leningrad State University, and became an assistant professor at the Leningrad Electrotechnical Institute. 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. After postdoctoral research at the University of California, San Diego, she joined the University of Connecticut faculty in 2003.
