Stephen Semmes is Noah Harding Professor of Mathematics at Rice University.[1] He is known for contributions to analysis on metric spaces, as well as harmonic analysis, complex variables, partial differential equations, and differential geometry. He received his B.S. at the age of 18, a Ph.D. at 21 and became a full professor at Rice at 25.


Semmes was awarded a Sloan Fellowship in 1987.[2] In 1994, he gave an invited talk at the International Congress of Mathematicians.[3]
