Gregory Francis Lawler (born July 14, 1955) is an American mathematician working in probability theory and best known for his work since 2000 on the Schramm–Loewner evolution.[1][2][3]

He received his Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1979 under the supervision of Edward Nelson.[4] He was on the faculty of Duke University from 1979 to 2001, of Cornell University from 2001 to 2006, and since 2006 is at the University of Chicago.[5]

He received the 2006 SIAM George Pólya Prize with Oded Schramm and Wendelin Werner. In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.[6] In 2019 he received the Wolf Prize in Mathematics.[7]
