Takurō Mochizuki (望月 拓郎, born 28 August 1972) of Kyoto University is a Japanese mathematician, whose research follows the Bourbaki style of generality and rigor. He was awarded the Japan Academy Prize in 2011 for his research on D-modules in algebraic analysis. In 2014 he was a plenary speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians.
As a student at the University of Kyoto in 1994, Mochizuki left his undergraduate early to become a graduate student in mathematics at the same university. He completed his Ph.D. in 1999, and joined the faculty of Osaka City University, returning to Kyoto in 2004.
