Joachim Krieger: Calabi Assistant Professor of Mathematics
October 21, 2008, Volume 55, No. 9



Dr. Joachim Krieger has been appointed the inaugural Calabi Assistant Professor of Mathematics. Recently named a 2008 Sloan Research Fellow, Dr. Krieger’s scholarly interests include partial differential equations, mathematical physics, harmonic analysis, and differential geometry. His work has been published in journals including Inventiones Mathematicae, Communications in Mathematical Physics, Memoirs of the American Mathematical Society, and the American Journal of Mathematics. Dr. Krieger joined the Penn faculty in 2007, after three years at Harvard University. He received his doctorate from Princeton University in 2003.

Awarded to a promising young teacher and scholar in the department of mathematics, the Calabi Assistant Professorship is named in honor of Eugenio and Giuliana Calabi.

Eugenio Calabi is a professor emeritus in the department of mathematics. Specializing in differential geometry and partial differential equations, he is most popularly associated with Calabi-Yau manifolds. Dr. Calabi was a Putnam Fellow as an undergraduate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and received his doctorate from Princeton University. He came to Penn in 1964. Appointed the Thomas A. Scott Chair of Mathematics in 1967, he won the American Mathematical Society’s Leroy P. Steele Prize in 1991, the same year he assumed emeritus status.
