Lars Hesselholt (born September 25, 1966) is a Danish mathematician who works as a professor of mathematics at Nagoya University in Japan, as well as holding a temporary position as Niels Bohr Professor at the University of Copenhagen.^{[1]}^{[2]} His research interests include homotopy theory,^{[3]} algebraic Ktheory,^{[3]} and arithmetic algebraic geometry.^{[2]}
Hesselholt was born in Vejrumbro, a village in the Viborg Municipality of Denmark.^{[1]} He studied at Aarhus University, earning a bachelor's degree in 1988, a master's degree in 1992, and a Ph.D. in 1994;^{[1]} his dissertation, supervised by Ib Madsen, concerned Ktheory.^{[4]} After postdoctoral studies at the MittagLeffler Institute, he joined the faculty of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1994 as a C.L.E. Moore instructor, and stayed at MIT as an assistant and then associate professor, before moving to Nagoya in 2008.^{[1]} Hesselholt's wife is Japanese, and when he joined the Nagoya faculty he became the first westerner with a full professorship in mathematics in Japan.^{[2]} He is the managing editor of the Nagoya Mathematical Journal.^{[5]}
Hesselholt became a Sloan fellow in 1998,^{[6]} and was an invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians in 2002.^{[7]} In 2012, he became one of the inaugural fellows of the American Mathematical Society,^{[8]} and a foreign member of the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters.^{[3]}^{[9]}
