Noy, Marc

Full Professor of Mathematics at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.

Received the Humboldt Research Award (2012) for his achievements in Discrete Mathematics. During 2012-13 was Von Neumann invited Professor at the Technical University of Munich. Invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Seoul (2014). Received the Medal Narcís Monturiol (2018) from the Catalan Government for significant contributions to science in Catalonia. 

His main scientific achievement is the asymptotic enumeration of planar graphs (jointly with Omer Giménez), which opened the way to the fine analysis of random planar graphs.

He is currently director of the Institute of Mathematics (IMTech) of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.
