Magnus Goffeng, guest postdoc

Newly employed

Magnus Goffeng started at MATH/UCPH on June 1st, 2015, as a postdoc funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation for two years. The last four years Magnus has been a postdoc at the Institute for Analysis at the Leibniz University of Hannover in Germany.

Magnus GoffengMagnus’ PhD is from University of Gothenburg, Sweden, under the supervision of Grigori Rozenblum. His postdoctoral mentor in Copenhagen is Ryszard Nest. He will be working with the research group Non-Commutative Geometry and the section for Geometric Analysis and Mathematical Physics.

Magnus' research will over the coming two years focus on a project concerning the noncommutative geometry appearing on manifolds when lessening the regularity, e.g. using Hölder functions instead of smooth functions. This involves spectral theory of commutators, regularized traces as well as cyclic cohomology. He is also interested in unbounded KK-theory, spectral theory, geometric models for K-homology and topological invariants of Schrödinger operators.

Magnus' office is 04.1.17.
