Yujie Xu

Hi! I received my PhD from Harvard in May 2022, advised by Mark Kisin.

Starting Fall 2022, I am a postdoc at MIT. Here is my website. My faculty mentor is Wei Zhang.

Starting Fall 2023, I will be a Joseph F. Ritt Assistant Professor at Columbia University.

Previously, I was an undergraduate at Caltech (B.S. June 2017).

Other Writings

Here is (the expository part of) my Harvard minor thesis on the Geometric Langlands Conjectures.


Instructor/Lecturer for Math 21b Linear Algebra and Differential Equations, Harvard University (Awarded a Bok Center Certificate of Distinction and Excellence in Teaching)

Here you can find excerpts of some extremely positive student comments from the freshman linear algebra class I taught at Harvard.

Teaching Fellow for Math 221 Commutative Algebra, Fall 2019, Harvard University (Awarded a Bok Center Certificate of Distinction and Excellence in Teaching)

Teaching Fellow for Math 137 Algebraic Geometry, Spring 2020, Harvard University (due to the pandemic, this course switched to Zoom instruction halfway, and there was no quantitive student evaluation nor Bok Center Teaching Award given out)

Teaching Fellow, Math 122 Algebra I: Theory of Groups and Vector Spaces, Fall 2020 (Zoom instruction), Harvard University (Awarded a Bok Center Certificate of Distinction and Excellence in Teaching)

Elliptic Curves and Beyond, Summer Tutorial 2019, Harvard University


I co-organized the STAGE seminar at MIT in Fall 2021 on Uniform Mordell. You can find notes for some of the talks here.


I was a plenary speaker at Community-building in the Langlands Program, Bonn, Germany, August 2022.
