August 2017 : Lino Amorim New Faculty Hire in Geometry
The Department of Mathematics welcomes assistant professor Lino Amorim. Lino got his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Wisconsin and then was hired as a postdoc at the University of Oxford and at Boston University. His research area is Symplectic Geometry. "Most of my research revolves around the interactions between the geometric (Kuranishi spaces) and algebraic structures (A-infinity categories) that serve as foundations for the theory of Fukaya categories", Amorim says. "I am also interested in applications of these to other areas such as Mirror Symmetry and Hamiltonian Dynamics." More recently, professor Amorim started working on Derived Algebraic Geometry and its applications to the study of holomorphic symplectic manifolds.
