Harald Bohr Lectures

The department is proud to announce the inauguration of the Harald Bohr lecture series in mathematics, named after the distinguished Danish mathematician Harald Bohr (1887-1951), to honor his legacy as an eminent and passionate communicator of mathematics.

The Harald Bohr lecturers are outstanding mathematicians from both pure and applied mathematics.

The lectures are held 2-3 times per year, usually on Tuesday afternoons at 15:15 after the department tea. The Harald Bohr lecture series is organized by Magdalena Musat.
