Professor Ehud Hrushovski is a Professor of Mathematics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Formerly, Hrushovski was the Professor of Mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in 1986, where his Ph.D. thesis revolutionized stable model theory. He has applied methods and theorems from model theory to other parts of mathematics, particularly arithmetic algebraic geometry, including the Mordell-Lang conjecture for function fields and a case of the Jacobi conjecture for difference fields. Additionally, he has advanced model theory, making algebra appear inherently rather than being imposed. He is a fellow of the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities and has received Erdos Prize, Karp Prize, Rothschild Prize, and Michael Bruno Memorial Award.
