Hertz Fellow: Cole Graham

Stanford University

Area of Study


Fellowship Years

2015 - present

Encouraged by his parents at a young age, Cole Graham careened eagerly between scientific disciplines until high school, when he participated in the 2009 Summer Institute for Mathematics at the University of Washington.  He became enchanted by mathematical analysis, and resolved to study the field in greater depth. He is proud of his contributions to reaction-diffusion theory and the study of polynomial zeros. Cole will pursue a PhD in mathematics at Stanford University. His research interests include the theory of stable polynomials, partial differential equations on manifolds, and harmonic analysis. Cole says, “The Hertz Fellowship will give me flexibility in my own research and the resource of the community of Hertz Fellows across disciplines.”
