Jesús Antonio De Loera (born January 18, 1966) is a Mexican-American mathematician at the University of California, Davis, specializing in discrete mathematics and discrete geometry.[2]


De Loera did his undergraduate studies at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, earning a B.S. in mathematics in 1989. After earning a master's degree from Western Michigan University a year later, and another master's degree in 1993 from Cornell University, he finished his doctorate from Cornell in 1995 under the supervision of Bernd Sturmfels.[2][3]


De Loera joined the UC Davis faculty as an assistant professor in 1998, and was promoted to full professor in 2005.[2] He served on the Scientific Advisory Board for the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) through 2021.[4]

Awards and Honors

In 2014, he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society "for contributions to discrete geometry and combinatorial optimization as well as for service to the profession, including mentoring and diversity."[5] In 2019 he was named a SIAM Fellow "for contributions to discrete geometry and optimization, polynomial algebra, and mathematical software".[6] In 2020 he received the INFORMS optimization society's Farkas Prize "in recognition of his pioneering work at the intersection of discrete mathematics, optimization and algebraic geometry."[7] He delivered an invited plenary address at the 2021 National Math Festival.[8]
