Biography and Research: 

Connor Mooney’s research investigates partial differential equations, which model many phenomena in physics and arise naturally in geometry. He is especially interested in the regularity (differentiability, analyticity) properties of solutions. Some of his work is on the Monge-Ampere equation, a fully nonlinear PDE that arises in problems involving isometric embeddings, optimal transport, and meteorology. Mooney received his B.S. Mathematics from Stanford University in 2011 and his Ph. D. from Columbia University in 2015.  Mooney was a Postdoctoral Researcher at ETH Zurich, a NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellow, UT Austin, and was awarded a NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellowship and a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.
