Yiannis N. Moschovakis

I was born in Athens, Greece in 1938, and finished my primary and secondary education there (Athens College) before coming to America in 1956. After four years at MIT, three years at the University of Wisconsin, Madison and one year at Harvard, I moved to UCLA in 1964 and have been there ever since, with long, annual sojourns to Athens. From 1996 until 2005 I was also a professor of mathematics at the University of Athens, teaching there every Fall term. In June 2010 I retired from UCLA, but will continue to teach there one or two courses each year for some time.

My wife Joan Rand Moschovakis is also a logician, a fellow student of Kleene's, and taught at Occidental College for some 30 years before taking (very early) retirement. My two (otherwise lovely) children, Nick and Anna, have nothing whatsoever to do with mathematics.
