Associate professor in mathematics.

Research interests include abelian varieties, derived categories, geometric invariant theory and moduli spaces of sheaves.

There is hope: Theory of vector bundles honoured in Congress

Algebraic geometry at UiS

The algebraic geometry group consists, as of 2014, of Michal Kapustka (associate professor, from 2015), Magnar Dale (associate professor), two PhD students and myself. We run a weekly seminar.

During 2014--2018, the group hosts the project sheaves on abelian varieties, funded by the Research Council of Norway.

I am looking for a postdoc to be hired for 3 years.
