Joe Harris Mathematician
Joseph Daniel Harris (born August 17, 1951) is a mathematician at Harvard University working in the field of algebraic geometry. After earning an AB from Harvard College, he continued at Harvard to study for a PhD under Phillip Griffiths.
During the 1980s, he was on the faculty of
Brown University, moving to Harvard around 1988. He served as chair of the department at Harvard from 2002 to 2005. His work is characterized by its classical geometric flavor: he has claimed that nothing he thinks about could not have been imagined by the Italian geometers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and that if he has had greater success than them, it is because he has access to better tools.
Harris is well known for several of his books on algebraic geometry, notable for their informal presentations:
Principles of Algebraic Geometry ISBN 978-0-471-05059-9, with Phillip Griffiths 
Geometry of Algebraic Curves, Vol. 1 ISBN 978-0-387-90997-4, with Enrico Arbarello, Maurizio Cornalba, and Phillip Griffiths
