Michael Krivelevich (born January 30, 1966) is a professor with the School of Mathematical Sciences of Tel Aviv University, Israel.

Krivelevich received his Ph.D. from Tel Aviv University in 1997 under the supervision of Noga Alon. He has published extensively in combinatorics and adjacent fields and specializes in extremal and probabilistic combinatorics.[1]

He serves as an editor-in-chief of the Electronic Journal of Combinatorics and is on the editorial board of several other journals in the field.

Awards and honors[edit]

In 2007, Krivelevich and Alan Frieze won the Pazy Memorial Award for research into probabilistic reasoning in combinatorics.[2]

In 2014, Krivelevich gave an invited address in the Combinatorics section at the International Congress of Mathematicians.[3]

He was elected as a member of the 2017 class of Fellows of the American Mathematical Society "for contributions to extremal and probabilistic combinatorics".[4]
