Image of Dr. Ryan Hynd

Dr. Ryan Hynd earned his PhD in mathematics from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2010. After a postdoctoral position at NYU’s Courant Institute, he joined the mathematics faculty at the University of Pennsylvania where he is an associate professor. In 2016-2017 he was a Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Visiting Assistant Professor at MIT. He has held several other visiting positions at mathematics institutes around the world including the Mittag-Leffler Mathematics Institute in Sweden and the Centro de Investigación en Matemáticas (CIMAT) in Mexico. In 2022
he was the recipient of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) Claytor-Gilmer Fellowship and in 2023 he was elected Fellow of the AMS.

Dr. Hynd is widely recognized in the mathematical community for his many contributions to partial differential equations motivated by problems in geometric analysis, functional and extremal inequalities, regularity properties for solutions of nonlinear partial differential equations
and eigenvalue estimates. His work combines tools from analysis, geometry, and probability to solve problems in fluid mechanics, control theory and finance. In the classroom he is an innovative teacher.

Dr. Hynd is passionate about promoting diversity in STEM and mentoring students from traditionally underrepresented groups. He was instrumental in creating the Bridge to Ph.D Master’s Program at UPenn. Partially funded by his NSF CAREER award, the program became recognized nationally as the Bridge Fellowships Program.
