Aktuelles / News

  • My research group in symplectic and contact topology at the HU Berlin will soon be advertising a 3-year postdoc position and one or two PhD studentships to start in Autumn 2019. Both are research positions, so no teaching (and thus no knowledge of German) is required. I will put up links here as soon as the official advertisements appear; application deadlines will be approximately January 1. (Students interested in a PhD studentship should also apply to the Berlin Mathematical School.)
  • 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.

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:

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.
