My name is Kevin O'Neill. In 2019, I received my Ph.D. in mathematics from UC Berkeley under the direction of Michael Christ and I am currently a Krener Assistant Professor working with Kevin Luli at UC Davis. In Fall 2021, I will be starting a Gibbs Assistant Professorship in the applied math program at Yale.
My current research interests are in Whitney-type problems: smooth interpolation, smooth extension, and related algorithms. In particular, I am interested in connections with data science.
I am also interested in harmonic analysis, in particular problems related to extremizers and stability theorems.
For more information, see the "Research" tab of my page.
In my free time, I like to read books, watch basketball, and train for marathons.
