Justin Tatch Moore (born 1974) [1]is a set theorist and logician. He is a full professor in mathematics at Cornell University.


Moore received his Ph.D. in 2000 from the University of Toronto under the supervision of Stevo Todorcevic.[1] He was an assistant professor in mathematics at Boise State University. In the fall of 2007, he joined the faculty at Cornell University.


His primary research area is Ramsey theory of infinite sets. He is known for solutions to the basis problem for uncountable linear orders and to the L space problem from general topology[2] and for his work in determining the consequences of relating the continuum to certain values of the aleph function.[3]

Awards, distinctions, and recognitions

Moore won the "Young Scholar's Competition" award in 2006, in Vienna, Austria. The Competition was a part of the "Horizons of Truth" celebrating the Gödel Centenary 2006.[4] He was an invited speaker at the ICM, Hyderabad 2010, Logic session, where he presented his solution to the problem of constructing an L-space. The L-space was constructed without assuming additional axioms and by combining Todorcevic's rho functions with number theory[5][6]

Moore is an editor for the Archive of Mathematical Logic where he handles papers in set theory.[3] He is one of the organizers of the fall 2012 Thematic Program in Forcing and its Applications at the Fields Institute.[7] In 2012, he was elected as a Fellow (Inaugural Class of Fellows) of the American Mathematical Society.[8]
