Kevin O'Neill's home page


My name is Kevin O'Neill. I am currently a 5th-year Ph.D. student at UC Berkeley under the supervision of Michael Christ. I graduated from Harvey Mudd College in 2013. In my free time, I like to go for runs and travel. You may email me at my last name AT math DOT berkeley DOT edu.

Along with Justin Brereton, I am currently a co-organizer for the Harmonic Analysis and Differential Equations Seminar (HADES) here at Berkeley. You may find our Fall 2017 schedule here.

Research Interests

My research is in harmonic analysis, specifically in the area of maximizers of classical normed inequalities. I am also interested in multilinear inequalities, restriction estimates, and incidence geometry.


Note: Classes during the school year were run by a professor while I led discussion. Classes over the summer were run solely by me.

Unfamiliar with Berkeley Connect? Essentially, it is a program at UC Berkeley in which graduate students mentor undergraduates in their field, providing the type of support that is typically more difficult to receive from a large university. Berkeley Connect has had particular success with transfer students and underrepresented minorities. You may find articles describing what we did in my time as a mentor here and here.


I expect to add a few more things to my webpage once I get more familiar with HTML and uploading, such as slides for some talks I've given and resources related to my teaching.
