Two PhD students visiting from Stanford

Guests

The two PhD-guests, Gergely Szucs and Jens Reinhold, will stay in Copenhagen for five months and study homotopy theory with Søren Galatius.

Gergely Szucs Gergely Szucs is a PhD student at Stanford University and will be visiting MATH from June 2nd to October 30th, 2016. Originally from Hungary, Gergely was an undergraduate student at Oxford University and has been a PhD student at Stanford University - since 2013 with Søren Galatius as advisor.

Gergely's thesis research currently focuses on group actions on manifolds, cobordism theory, and their relation to moduli spaces of manifolds. Equivariant stable homotopy theory plays a unifying role in his work.

Jens Reinhold Jens Reinhold is a first year PhD student at Stanford University and will be visiting MATH from June 21st to November 20th, 2016. Before coming to Stanford, Jens completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Bonn, where he wrote his Bachelor's thesis with Wolfgang Lück on Noetherian EI-categories and applications to topology. Since 2015 he has been a PhD student at Stanford University - since 2016 with Søren Galatius as advisor.

Jens is interested in many aspects of topology, especially the application of homotopy theory to infinite groups, but also homological stability and moduli spaces of manifolds.
