Hello (안녕하세요/in Korean). I was a Simons Postdoctoral Fellow and a Lecturer at The University of Texas at Austin during September 2015 - August 2017. I am managing this webpage for my own research purpose.

Name : Jae Oh Woo (Korean - 우재오), pronouncing my first name is almost like saying the alphabet character 'J' and 'O' separately.


I finished Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics Program at Yale University and B.S. in Mathematics at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST).

As an Applied Mathematician, I am interested in both theoretical and application problems in mathematics and engineering. In my theoretical approach, I have a fundamental curiosity in the theme "Randomness and Convexity are connected." Information Theory, Probability Theory, Bayesian Statistics, and Spectral Graph Theory are my main fields in mathematics. I am recently focusing on research problems in Stochastic Geometry, Convex Geometry, Opinion Dynamics, and Wireless Networks which covers both theoretical and application problems[More Information]

My CV is available here (as of May, 2017).
