Who is Frank Morgan?

Frank Morgan is an American mathematician and the Webster Atwell '21 Professor of Mathematics at Williams College, specialising in geometric measure theory and minimal surfaces.

He is most famous for proving the Double Bubble conjecture, that the minimum-surface-area enclosure of two given volumes is formed by three spherical patches meeting at 120-degree angles at a common circle. Morgan is a vice-president-elect of the American Mathematical Society.

Morgan studied at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Princeton University, and received his Ph.D. from Princeton in 1977, under the supervision of Frederick J. Almgren, Jr.. He taught at MIT for ten years before joining the Williams faculty.
