Personal

Photo oh Gleb under a "please take a number" sign.

This is a photo of me in the lobby of the Hilbert Hotel.

I was born in the capital of Belarus, Minsk, and lived there as a kid. Between the mid-nineties and mid-2000s, I moved around a little bit because of my parents' work, and got to spend a few years in Jerusalem, Israel, and in Houston, Texas. Eventually I returned to Belarus to attend high school, and graduated from Polotsk's School №10.

I attended Texas A&M University. I then migrated westward, to attend grad school at the University of Arizona, where my advisor was Ibrahim Fatkullin. Towards the end of my grad school career, I became interested in ecology, and wanted to become a more interdisciplinary mathematician--and was fortunately able to join Karen Abbott's theoretical ecology group at Case Western Reserve University!

Some things I like:

  • I like telling and hearing jokes (please email me if you have a good joke)
  • I like riding my bike
  • I like school-level, competition-style math problems. I talked about them at the UA Math Circle. I posted some basic problems on the Recreational Math page, and will add more later (but email me if you'd like mistitled PDFs of old problem sets!)
