Kenji Ueno (上野 健爾, Ueno Kenji, 1945, Kumamoto Prefecture) is a Japanese mathematician, specializing in algebraic geometry.[1]

He was in the 1970s at the University of Tokyo and was from 1987 to 2009 a professor at the University of Kyoto and is now the director of Yokkaichi University's Seki Kōwa Institute for Mathematics.[1] In 1978 he was an Invited Speaker (Classification of algebraic manifolds) at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Helsinki.[2]

Ueno was a visiting professor at several universities, including the University of Bonn and the University of Mannheim in the 1970s.

He is the author and editor of several books on algebraic geometry.[3]
