Larry Guth is a geometer who studies isoperimetric inequalities, systolic inequalities, and other kinds of estimates about surface areas. Recently, he has become interested in Kakeya-type problems in harmonic analysis. In particular, he is working on understanding how much Dvir’s polynomial method can tell us about Kakeya-type problems in Euclidean space.
