Jörg Brendle is a set-theorist working at the Graduate School of System Informatics, Kobe University, Japan.
His current research focuses on iterated forcing theory and its interplay with the structure of sets of reals.

He obtained his PhD in 1991 from Tübingen University, Germany, under the supervision of Ulrich Felgner.
