Andrea Mondino wins the Whitehead Prize

08 September 2020
Ph. D. in Mathematics at SISSA in 2011 now is Fellow of Pure Mathematics at St. Hilda’s college

Andrea Mondino has been awarded the Whitehead Prize by the London Mathematical Society, in recognition of his contributions to geometric analysis in differential and metric settings. In particular, he has played a central part in the development of the theory of metric measure spaces with Ricci curvature lower bounds.

Dr. Mondino obtained his PhD in Mathematics at SISSA in 2011 and now is Associate Professor at the Mathematical Institute-University of Oxford and Tutorial Fellow of Pure Mathematics at St. Hilda’s college.

"I would like to share the satisfaction of this award with friends, collaborators and teachers (many of them at SISSA), to whom I owe a lot both mathematically and personally" says  Dr. Mondino. "The years as a graduate student (UniTs-SISSA joint training course) and PhD at SISSA were very important in my personal and mathematical growth. I carry with me very beautiful memories of that period and when I return to Italy I never miss a visit to the fascinating Trieste".

The Whitehead Prize is named in memory of homotopy theory pioneer, J.H.C. Whitehead and is awarded annually by the London Mathematical Society to early-career Mathematicians.
