Andrea Mondino awarded a Whitehead Prize by the London Mathematical Society

Oxford Mathematician Andrea Mondino has been awarded a Whitehead Prize by the London Mathematical Society (LMS) in recognition of his contributions to geometric analysis in differential and metric settings and in particular for his central part in the development of the theory of metric measure spaces with Ricci curvature lower bounds.

Andrea works at the interface between Analysis and Geometry. More precisely he studies problems arising from (differential and metric) geometry by using analytic techniques such as optimal transport, functional analysis, partial differential equations, calculus of variations, gradient flows, nonlinear analysis and geometric measure theory. Although the emphasis of his work is primarily theoretical, the topics and the techniques have profound links with applications to natural sciences (mainly physics and biology) and economics.
