Ben Pineau

I'm a recent PhD graduate from the mathematics department at UC Berkeley. My main area of study is in nonlinear partial differential equations.

Starting September 2024 I will be a Simons Junior Fellow in the Simons Society of Fellows and will be hosted by the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences in New York City.

My research interests are generally in physically motivated models, some of which include Schrödinger equations, free boundary Euler equations, water waves, and the equations of magnetohydrodynamics. I am also interested in stable phase retrieval.

My advisor was Daniel Tataru. My dissertation can be viewed here.

Teaching and seminar organization

In Spring 2024, I am a GSI for Math 1B. My office is at Evans 1049 and my office hours are 4-6 pm on Fridays. I am also co-organizing the Harmonic Analysis and Differential Equations Seminar (HADES) with Ovidiu Avadanei, Izak Oltman and Ely Sandine.
