Gregory Margulis is a Russian-American mathematician known for his work on lattices in Lie groups, and the introduction of methods from ergodic theory into diophantine approximation. He won the Fields Medal in 1978 for providing innovative analysis of the structure of Lie groups and received the Abel Prize in 2020.
