Natasha Blitvic is a Reader in Mathematical Sciences at Queen Mary University of London. She is a pure mathematician working on foundations of probability theory, with a separate interest in how probabilistic principles manifest in nature. Her pure mathematics work seeks to characterize two classes of probabilistic phenomena: positivity, that is ways in which probabilistic intuition carries over to unexpected settings, such as algebra or combinatorics, and universality, according to which certain probabilistic structures tend to recur in many, seemingly unrelated scenarios. Dr Blitvic obtained a PhD from MIT, where she was a Claude E. Shannon Research Assistant, an NSERC Fellow, and a Chateaubriand Fellow. Her research has been supported by UK Research and Innovation, the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research, and the Leverhulme Trust. To PriME, Dr Blitvic brings expertise in probabilistic modeling, with emphasis on large-scale consequences of small-scale fluctuations and interactions.
