James Maynard works in analytic number theory, particularly on sieve methods and the distribution of prime numbers. In his work, he typically tries to use tools from analysis, probability, and algebra to extend the current methods for showing the existence of prime numbers in different sets, or to apply such methods to better understand the distribution of primes.
