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.[1]


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.[1][2]


De Loera joined the UC Davis faculty as an assistant professor in 1998, and was promoted to full professor in 2005.[1]

Awards and Honors[edit]

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."[3]
