Eric Zaslow is an American mathematical physicist at Northwestern University.


Zaslow attended Harvard University, earning his Ph.D. in physics in 1995,[1] with thesis "Kinks, twists, and folds : exploring the geometric musculature of quantum field theory" written under the direction of Cumrun Vafa.[2] His research focuses on mathematical questions arising from duality symmetries in theoretical physics such as mirror symmetry. With Andrew Strominger and Shing-Tung Yau, he formulated the SYZ conjecture.[3]

He was named to the 2021 class of fellows of the American Mathematical Society "for contributions to mathematical physics and mirror symmetry".[4]

Zaslow is also known for being internationally ranked in ultimate, with seven world or national championships[1] and has written limericks about physics competitively.[5]
