**Based:**Cambridge, UK**Email:**hkrieger@dpmms.cam.ac.uk**Mathematical bio:**Born and raised near Chicago, Professor Holly Krieger completed the undergraduate mathematics honors program at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She went on to a master's degree and a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Chicago, with initial research interests during graduate school primarily in arithmetic and Diophantine geometry. Under the guidance of Laura DeMarco and Ramin Takloo-Bighash, her thesis work focused on the emerging field of arithmetic dynamics, which studies the relationship between dynamics of one complex variable and the arithmetic geometry of abelian varieties.

She followed her PhD work with an NSF postdoctoral fellowship at MIT under the supervision of Bjorn Poonen, during which time she became particularly interested in problems of unlikely intersections in complex dynamics. In 2016 she was appointed to the Corfield Lectureship at the University of Cambridge as well as a Fellowship at Murray Edwards College, and in 2022 promoted to Professor of Mathematics (Grade 11). She was the 2019 Mahler Lecturer of the Australian Mathematical Society and the 2021-2022 Sally Starling Seaver Fellow at the Harvard Radcliffe Institute, and was awarded the London Mathematical Society Whitehead Prize and the American Institute of Mathematics Alexanderson Award.
