I got my PhD in mathematics under supervision of Gerard Ben Arous at NYU in 2008.

So, my math genealogy is French-oriented.
According to Math Genealogy Project, it goes like this:

$\uparrow$

Sarah Rothenberg and Robert Azencott (photo by Dave Rossman for The Chronicle)

$\uparrow$

 Jacques Neveu $\leftarrow$ Robert Fortet $\leftarrow$ Maurice Fréchet

$\uparrow$

 Jacques Hadamard $\leftarrow$ Émile Picard $\leftarrow$ Gaston Darboux

My PhD in Economics was written under supervision of Robert W. Rosenthal who was a mathematically trained economist and who worked in game theory.

On this side, my genealogy eventually goes to Germany.
