I'm co-organizing a Mini-Workshop on Symplectic Geometry, which will take place at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam on October 9, 2017. The workshop is aimed at researchers, Ph.D. students, and advanced master's students working in symplectic geometry and related areas.
This will be the sixth instance of this mini-workshop. Previous workshops:
My research area is symplectic geometry. I have proved that in various situations a given Hamiltonian diffeomorphism of a symplectic manifold has leafwise fixed points with respect to a coisotropic submanifold. This has applications to symplectic nonsqueezing and the existence of stably exotic symplectic structures.
In another part of my research I have investigated the symplectic vortex equations. These are a gauge theoretic version of the Cauchy-Riemann equation. They are related to the Gromov-Witten invariants of symplectic quotients.
blok 2: Functionaalanalyse (WISB315).
blok 1: Maat en integratie (WISB312).
August 14-25, 2017: Utrecht Summer School on Geometry. On August 16, 2017 I will give a minicourse on ``Some highlights of symplectic geometry''. Here are some lecture notes for this minicourse, the assignment and solutions therefor.
I am an organizer of Geometry and Algebra, Geometry and Analysis, a weekly research seminar.
I am a member of the Library Users Committee at our Mathematics Department.
I am a member of GQT: Geometry and Quantum Theory.
I am in charge of keeping a list of local GQT-master courses updated.
I am the organizer of the Utrecht Running Club. We are a group of people gathering for weekly runs. Feel free to join us!
