Aktuelles / News

  • My research group in symplectic and contact topology at the HU Berlin has just advertised a 3-year postdoc position and two PhD studentships to start in Autumn 2019 (or sooner if preferred). These are all research positions, so no teaching (and thus no knowledge of German) is required. The salary for the postdoc position is TV-L E13 (for those who know what that means... if not I can clarify), and the Ph.D. studentships are on the same scale but as half-time positions, so the salaray is comparable to a standard Ph.D. scholarship as offered e.g. by the Berlin Mathematical School. (Students interested in a Ph.D. studentship should also apply to the Berlin Mathematical School; the required application materials are mostly the same.) Please send me e-mail if you have any questions. The application deadlines are January 1, 2019.
  • We will be hosting the next installment of the CAST (Contact and Symplectic Topology) workshop series here at the HU Berlin from March 7 to 9, 2019.

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:

PhD students:

If you are interested in doing a PhD under my supervision, you should apply to the Berlin Mathematical School. This generally works best if I know enough about you to enthusiastically support your application, so for that reason it's a good idea to contact me ahead of time. (In some cases there may also be funding available that you would need to apply for separately from the BMS --- if so, I will tell you.)

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.
