Igor Wigman did his PhD in Tel-Aviv University in Number Theory under the direction of Professor Zeev Rudnick.

After concluding the PhD studies in 2006, he was a postdoctoral fellow in CRM Montreal in 2006-2009 and KTH Stockholm in 2009-2010 until he was appointed as a Lecturer in Pure Mathematics in the Cardiff University, where he was based 2010-2012.

In September 2012 he joined King's College London as a Lecturer in Number Theory, and was promoted to Reader in September 2014 followed by a promotion to Professor in 2018.

Research Interests

  • Analytic number theory including the geometry of numbers, counting problems, equidistribution.
  • Probability and stochastic processes.
  • Applications in mathematical physics, especially quantum chaos and spectral geometry. Nodal lines and zeros of random fields, especially various models of random waves.
