Jeff CheegerProfessor of Mathematics
Jeff Cheeger has been a member of the NYU faculty since 1989. His research interests concern differential geometry, especially Riemannian geometry and its connections with topology and analysis. He has lectured extensively, including the Marston Morse Lectures at the Institute for Advanced Study, Fermi Lectures at the Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa, and he has been invited twice to address the International Congress of Mathematicians. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the Finnish Academy of Science and Letters, and is the winner of the Veblen Prize in Geometry of AMS. Widely published, he has been editor of the Journal of Geometric and Functional Analysis and the Journal of Differential Geometry and has served on the editorial boards of the Journal of Geometric and Functional Analysis and Communications on Pure and Applied Mathematics. Professor Cheeger earned his B.A. from Harvard College, and his M.S. and Ph.D. from Princeton University.
