School of Sciences and Humanities, Mathematics
Associate Professor

Mark Lawrence is an original faculty member of Nazarbayev University, having joined the mathematics faculty in fall of 2011. 
He received his PhD from the University of Washington with subject area function theory of several complex variables. His research has centered on the theory of polynomial hulls  and analytic continuation problems. He proved the first  boundary versions of the classical Hartogs separate analyticity theorem for integrable functions. In another paper,  he used CR wedge extension techniques to show the existence of  new real analytic function algebras. More recently he has become interested in problems which are on the boundary between complex analysis and symplectic topology.
