Eric Bach: (Berkeley, 1984) Theoretical computer science, computational number theory, algebraic algorithms, complexity theory, cryptography, six-string automata. (Joint appointment with CS.)

Nigel Boston: (Harvard, 1987) Algebraic number theory, group theory, arithmetic geometry, computational algebra, coding theory, cryptography, and other applications of algebra to electrical engineering. (Joint appointments with ECE and CS.)

Andrei Caldararu: (Cornell, 2000) Algebraic geometry, homological algebra, string theory.

Tullia Dymarz: (Chicago, 2007) Geometric group theory, quasi-isometric rigidity, large scale geometry of finitely generated groups, solvable groups and quasiconformal analysis.
