## Our Speakers

Research Professor

László Lovász (born March 9, 1948) is a Hungarian-American mathematician and professor emeritus at Eötvös Loránd University, best known for his work in combinatorics, for which he was awarded the 2021 Abel Prize jointly with Avi Wigderson.

Researcher

Dávid Kunszenti-Kovács studies various questions within graph limit theory.

Research Professor

János Pach is a Hungarian mathematician and computer scientist working in the fields of combinatorics and discrete and computational geometry.

PhD Student

Gábor Damásdi is a Hungarian doctoral student at Eötvös Loránd University. His research interest lies in combinatorial and discrete geometry and computer science.

Professor

Philippe Gabriel Michel is a French mathematician who holds the chair in analytic number theory at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland.

Research Professor

András Stipsicz is Hungarian mathematician, university professor and corresponding member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences working in low dimensional topology, gauge theory, Seiberg-Witten and Donaldson theory...

Postdoctoral Fellow

Marco Marengon is a postdoc working in topology. Among the objects he works with are smooth manifolds of dimensions 3 and 4, knotted circles in the 3-space, and surfaces smoothly embedded in some 4-manifold.

Professor

Eduard Feireisl is a Czech mathematician. His research deals with partial differential equations, infinite dimensional dynamical systems, and mathematical problems of hydrodynamics.

Research Professor

András Némethi is a Transylvanian-born Hungarian mathematician, university professor and corresponding member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences working in singularity theory, algebraic geometry and (low-dimensional) topology.

Postdoctoral Fellow

Octave Curmi is a postdoc working in topology of singularities and

geometry. He studies mainly the so-called smoothings of singularities of

complex surfaces, which provide a bridge between analytic geometry and

low-dimensional topology.
