from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Joseph A. Neisendorfer (born April 22, 1945 in Chicago ) is an American mathematician who deals with algebraic topology ( homotopy theory ).

Neisendorfer studied at the University of Chicago with a bachelor's degree in 1967 and at Princeton University with a master's degree in 1968 and a doctorate with John Coleman Moore in 1972 ( Homotopy theory modulo an odd prime ). In 1972 he became an assistant professor at the University of Notre Dame , 1976 at Syracuse University and 1978 at Fordham University . In 1980/81 he was at the Institute for Advanced Study and then Associate Professor at Ohio State University . Since 1985 he was a professor at the University of Rochester . He is a fellow of the American Mathematical Society .
