Chandrashekhar B. Khare (born 1968) is a professor of mathematics at the University of California Los Angeles. In 2005, he made a major advance in the field of Galois representations and number theory by proving the level 1 Serre conjecture, and later a proof of the full conjecture with Jean-Pierre Wintenberger.
Resident of Mumbai, India and completed his undergraduate education at Trinity College, Cambridge University. He finished his thesis in 1995 under the supervision of Haruzo Hida at California Institute of Technology. His Ph.D. thesis was published in the Duke Mathematical Journal. He proved Serre's conjecture with Jean-Pierre Wintenberger, published in Inventiones Mathematicae.
He started his career as a Fellow at Tata Institute of Fundamental Research. Currently, he is a professor at University of California, Los Angeles.
Awards and honors
He gave an invited talk at the International Congress of Mathematicians in 2010, on the topic of "Number Theory".
