Differential Geometry, Mathematical Physics, PDE (DG-MP-PDE)

I am also an associate member of the Department of Physics & Astronomy



Mathematical Physics; Here is a list of my publications

Here are two talks I gave that have been published on Youtube, both intended for a rather broad audience of mathematical physics:
on the classification of quantum phases (in the Global Noncommutative Geometry Seminar),
on topological quantum transport (in the seminar of the International Association of Mathematical Physics)

I am a editor of Mathematical Physics, Analysis and Geometry and Advances in Theoretical and Mathematical Physics

Here is a list of upcoming seminars inclulding those of the DG-MP-PDE group

Ye were not form'd to live the life of brutes
But virtue to pursue and knowledge high."

Short CV

I was born in the shadow of these mountains, studied next to those, got my doctorate facing more mountains, explored those for a few years, moved closer the original ones, and am currently enjoying other wild peaks. Needless to say, I have been very lucky.
