Research overview

Rigidity and flexibility of frameworks

Discrete goemetry and combinatorics

Operator theory and functional analysis

PhD supervision

I am interested in supervising projects in geometric and combinatorial rigidity (both theory and application areas). I am particularly interested in rigidity properties of periodic structures, rigidity under alternative metrics, and aspects which border analysis, operator theory and Banach space geometry. A good background in either combinatorics or analysis is sufficient to get started. For more information please contact me.
