I am Jiewon Park, a fifth year graduate student in the MIT Math Department. My advisor is Tobias Holck Colding.
I am interested in differential geometry.
Here is my CV (last updated 10/28/2019).

  2. (with Wenchuan Tian and Changliang Wang) A Compactness Theorem for Rotationally Symmetric Riemannian Manifolds with Positive Scalar Curvature, Accepted for publication at Pure and Applied Mathematics Quarterly. (2018)
  3. Matrix Inequality for the Laplace Equation, International Mathematics Research Notices, Volume 2019, Issue 11, June 2019, 3485-3497.

Invited Talks

  1. TBD, CMS 75th Anniversary Summer Meeting, University of Ottawa, June 5-8, 2020.
  2. A smooth analogue for the distance function for Ricci curvature, AMS Spring Southeastern Sectional Meeting: Special Session on Geometric Flows and Minimal Surfaces, Auburn University, Mar 16, 2019.

Other Activities

I mentored two undergraduates in the MIT UROP+ program in the summer of 2017 - one project on the equivariant first Chern class, and one project on self similar solutions of the vortex filament equation (or binormal flow) and the curve shortening flow.
I co-organized the Pure Math Graduate Student Seminar (PUMAGRASS) during 2016-2017.
