Aktuelles / News

  • My research group in symplectic and contact topology at the HU Berlin has just advertised a 3-year postdoc position to start in Autumn 2020 (or sooner if preferred). This is a research position, so no teaching (and thus no knowledge of German) is required. The salary is TV-L E13 (for those who know what that means... if not I can clarify). Please send me e-mail if you have any questions. The application deadline is January 1, 2020.
  • The gap in the paper Transversality and super-rigidity for multiply covered holomorphic curves has now been filled. For details, see this blog post.

This is me, wielding my trusty water bottle to protect Imperial China from Mongol invasion.

Forschung / Research

My research is in symplectic and contact topology, particularly the theory of pseudoholomorphic curves, applications to contact manifolds, and symplectic field theory.

Here is my publications page.

I am an editorial advisor for the Proceedings / Journal / Bulletin / Transactions of the LMS, in the area of symplectic and contact topology.

Seminars of interest:

Upcoming conferences / workshops:

(Note: the above used to be a list of events that I was personally planning to attend, but then I learned that some people are actually using it to find out what's going on, so I've added more events that I won't necessarily be attending. Thus if your main goal is to stalk me, this list will be only partially helpful.)

And some conferences in the recent past.

Past events that I organized:

Abschlussarbeiten / Students (Ph.D., Master, Bachelor) supervised

A Frequently Asked Question

Question: Aren't you German?

Answer: No. Don't let my name, or my appearance, or the fact that I teach at a German university or that you've overheard me speaking German with colleagues fool you. I am, in fact, not German.

An Occasionally Asked Question

Question: Where did you learn to speak English so well?

Answer: It is my native language.

A Question That Is Asked Far More Often Than It Should Be

Question: Where did you learn to speak German so well?

Answer: I don't speak German that well, it only sounds like it if you don't listen carefully.
