Hee Oh designated the Abraham Robinson Professor of Mathematics
Hee Oh, newly named as the Abraham Robinson Professor of Mathematics, focuses her research on Lie groups, dynamics, number theory, Kleinian groups, and hyperbolic geometry.
A graduate of Seoul National University, Oh earned her Ph.D. from Yale in 1997. She has held faculty appointments at Princeton University, the California Institute of Technology, and Brown University. She was a postdoctoral fellow at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a member of the Institute for Advanced Study. Her visiting positions include terms at Harvard University, the Max-Planck Institute, the Korea Institute for Advanced Study, and the Isaac Newton Institute, among other institutions. She joined the Yale faculty in 2013 as professor of mathematics.
Oh has contributed numerous articles and chapters to edited books and professional journals. She is on the editorial board of Groups, Geometry, and Dynamics. She co-edited the publication “Thin Groups and Super-Strong Approximation” and a special issue of the Quarterly Journal of Pure and Applied Math.
The Yale professor received the 2015 Satter Prize from the American Mathematical Society, which recognizes an outstanding contribution to mathematics research by a woman in the previous six years. Oh has been invited to deliver lectures at the PRIMA Congress (Mexico), the International Congress of Women Mathematicians (Korea), and the International Congress of Mathematicians (India), among other organizations. The recipient of numerous National Science Foundation grants, Oh serves on the scientific advisory board at the American Institute of Mathematics.
