Hello, I'm Igor Pinheiro

I am an aspiring mathematician interested in Optimal Transport, Differential Equations and, most recently, Statistics.


About me

Welcome to my website! Here is a bit about me

I hold a Master of Science degree in Mathematics from the University of British Columbia where I worked under the supervision of Dr. Nassif Ghoussoub. Currently, I work as an Actuary at iA Financial Group.

My main interest is Optimal Transport. I enjoy examining which properties of Classical OT remain valid for measures with infinite mass. I also spend time studying Variational Methods and a pinch of Statistics.

Research projects

The Topology Induced by the extended Wasserstein Distance

 with Dr. Hugo Lavenant                                                                           

The relationship between the Shape Optimization problem and the Dual problem.

With Dr. Nassif Ghoussoub and Dr. Dweik                                        

Critical Point Theory, Varational Methods and Elliptic Partial Differential Equations.

 with Dr. Rubia Nascimento                                                                          


This is a selection of works I have written.  If the link is not working, please email me. Likely the publication is not available to the public, but I will gladly send it to you.

Skills and Techniques



Entrepreneurial ventures

These are some side projects I developed in between proofs and theorems.

Scirolls is website dedicated to broadcast science in Brazil. On Scirolls users can post their scientific work and read other authors' work. Being a merge of ArXiv and Webtoon, Scirolls has a fluid reading system while guaranteeing scientific accuracy in all it produces.
