Conférence Detail, April 27, 2012

The International Scientific Advisory Committee of the Centre de recherches mathématiques is happy to announce that Marco Gualtieri (University of Toronto) and Young-Heon Kim (UBC) are the 2012 André Aisenstadt Prize recipients.

Dr. Gualtieri obtained a bachelor degree in science at McGill University in 1999 and his Ph.D. from Oxford University in 2004  under the supervision of Nigel J. Hitchin. He was awarded the Lichnerowicz prize in Poisson geometry in 2010 and he joined the University of Toronto in 2008. His area of research is differential geometry and he made essential contributions to the development of generalized complex geometry, an active area of research at the interface of complex geometry and symplectic geometry.




Dr. Kim obtained his bachelor degree in mathematics at the Pohang University of Science and Technology and a Master's degree at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology in South Korea. He was awarded his Ph.D. in 2005 from Northwestern University under the supervision of Ezra Getzler. He joined the mathematics department of the University of British Columbia in 2008. His specialty is in analysis and his most important contributions concern the fast developing topic of optimal transportation.
