Biography
She received a bachelor of arts degree from Harvard University in 1989 and a PhD from the University of California, Berkeley in 1995 under the direction of Charles C. Pugh.^{[1]} She is currently a professor of mathematics at the University of Chicago. She is married to Benson Farb, who is also a professor in the same department.^{[2]}
Work
Wilkinson's work focuses on the geometric and statistical properties of diffeomorphisms and flows with a particular emphasis on stable ergodicity and partial hyperbolicity. In a series of papers with Christian Bonatti and Sylvain Crovisier, Wilkinson studied centralizers of diffeomorphisms^{[3]}^{[4]} settling the C^{1} case of the twelfth problem on Stephen Smale's list of mathematical problems for the 21st Century.^{[5]}
Awards
Wilkinson was the recipient of the 2011 Satter Prize in Mathematics,^{[1]} in part for her work with Keith Burns on stable ergodicity of partially hyperbolic systems.^{[6]}
She gave an invited talk, "Dynamical Systems and Ordinary Differential Equations", in the International Congress of Mathematicians 2010 in Hyderabad, India.^{[7]}
In 2013 she became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society, for "contributions to dynamical systems".^{[8]} In 2019 she was elected to the Academia Europaea.^{[9]}
