Supervision of bachelor and master theses
If you are interested in Differential Geometry/Topology, feel free to contact me to ask about supervising your thesis (and we can discuss to find a suitable topic). These are the areas I am most familiar with:
- Contact and Symplectic Topology
- h-Principle (i.e. topological methods to construct/classify geometric structures)
- Subriemannian Geometry (i.e. the theory of subbundles of the tangent bundle)
I would also be happy to chat if you are interested in Lorentz/Riemannian Geometry or Geometric Analysis (but this is further away from what I normally do!)
