Seven New Postdocs Join the Department
The Department of Mathematics has a strong postdoctoral program that attracts outstanding young researchers from top universities. Seven new postdoctoral fellows joined the department this fall, bringing the total number of postdocs to 19.
Arnaud Brothier received his Ph.D. in 2011 at the Université Paris Diderot. His research interests are in von Neumann algebras.
Yago Antolin Pichel received his Ph.D. in 2010 at the University of Barcelona. His research interests are in geometric group theory.
Alexandr Kazda’s research interests are in the areas of algebra and complexity theory. He earned his Ph.D. in 2013 from Charles University in Prague.
Matthew Moore received his Ph.D. in 2013 at the University of Colorado at Boulder. His research is in the areas of algebra and logic, in particular, the decidability of algebraic properties.
Cameron Browne’s research interests are in mathematical biology, in particular, applying the theory of differential equations and dynamical systems to the modeling of the evolution of viruses and the spread dynamics of invasive species. He earned hi Ph.D. in 2012 from the University of Florida, Gainesville.
Charles Martin’s research interests are in the area of potential theory. He received his Ph.D. in 2013 at the University of California at Santa Barbara.
Kamran Reihani earned his Ph.D. in 2005 at Tarbiat Modares University, Iran. His research specialties are in C*-algebras and noncommutative geometry.
“It’s exciting to have such a diverse and talented group of young mathematicians join us,” says Department Chair Dietmar Bisch. “We look forward to many interesting research discussions and to their contributions to teaching in our department.”
