The Packard Foundation established the Fellowships program in 1988 to provide early-career scientists with flexible funding and the freedom to take risks and explore new frontiers in their fields. Each year, the Foundation invites 54 universities to nominate two faculty members for consideration. The Packard Fellowships Advisory Panel, a group of 12 internationally-recognized scientists and engineers, evaluates the nominations and recommends 20 Fellows for approval by the Packard Foundation Board of Trustees.
Amol Aggarwal is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Columbia University. By developing (and often combining) algebraic, analytic, and probabilistic frameworks, Aggarwal studies how intricate structures behave in large scaling limits under various guises, such as statistical mechanical systems with many molecules; random matrices of high dimension; and surfaces of large genus.
