Trevor Dion Wooley FRS is a British mathematician and currently Professor of Mathematics at the University of Bristol. His fields of interest include analytic number theory, Diophantine equations and Diophantine problems, harmonic analysis, the Hardy-Littlewood circle method, and the theory and applications of exponential sums. He has made significant breakthroughs on Waring's problem, for which he was awarded the Salem Prize in 1998.

He received his bachelor's degree in 1987 from the University of Cambridge and his Ph.D., supervised by Robert Charles Vaughan, in 1990 from the University of London.[1] In 2007 he was elected Fellow of the Royal Society.
