Cecil and Ida B. Green Career Development Associate Professor of Mathematics
Analysis related to Mathematical Physics, General Relativity, PDEs
Jared Speck joined the department faculty as Assistant Professor of Mathematics in 2011, and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2016. He received the Ph.D. from Rutgers University in 2008, under the guidance of Michael Kiessling and Shadi Tahvildar-Zadeh. He completed the B.Sc in mathematics from the University of Maryland in 2002. He served as lecturer for a year at Princeton, before going to the University of Cambridge on a research appointment, working with Mihalis Dafermos. He returned to Princeton in 2010-11 as an NSF Fellow working with Igor Rodnianski and Sergiu Klainerman. In 2014, he received the Sloan Research Fellowship, and in 2015 the NSF CAREER Award. He received MIT's Cecil and Ida Green Career Development Professorship, July 2015-June 2018.
Speck is an analyst of nonlinear pdes arising in mathematical physics. His research is connected to problems in general relativity, relativistic fluid mechanics, relativistic kinetic theory, and nonlinear electrodynamics.
