## Our Speakers

Professor

Miklós Laczkovich (born 21 February 1948) is a Hungarian mathematician mainly noted for his work on real analysis and geometric measure theory. His most famous result is the solution of Tarski's circle-squaring problem in 1989.

Senior Research Fellow

Miklós Abért is interested in measured and asymptotic group theory, in particular spectral theory of graphs and groups, local sampling convergence, graph polynomials, stochastic processes on groups, rank gradient, invariant random subgroups, homology growth, sofic entropy, cellular automata and locally symmetric spaces.

Assistant Research Fellow

Vilas Winstein is a student researcher studying sparse graph limits and his research focuses on spectral problems about graphings.

Professor

Valentin Blomer (born in Munich) is a German mathematician working on analytic number theory. His main research areas are: number theory, in particular analytic number theory, automorphic forms, L-functions, quadratic forms.

Postdoctoral Fellow

Keshav Aggarwal is a postdoctoral researcher at the Alfréd Rényi
Institute of Mathematics. His research lies in analytic number theory,
with a focus on the study of L-functions using classical tools like the
circle method and harmonic analysis.

Research Fellow

Dániel Virosztek works in functional analysis with expertise in quantum information theory. Currently, he is interested in the geometric aspects of classical and quantum optimal transport.

Research Fellow

Tamás Titkos is a research fellow of the MTA-Rényi "Momentum" Optimal Transport and Quantum Information Geometry Research Group. He is interested in functional analysis and optimal transport, in particular in the geometry of Wasserstein spaces.

Professor

Sarah Livia Zerbes is a German algebraic number theorist at ETH Zurich. Her research interests include L-functions, modular forms, p-adic Hodge theory, and Iwasawa theory, and her work has led to new insights towards the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture, which predicts the number of rational points on an elliptic curve by the behavior of an associated L-function.

PhD Student

Wojtek Wawrow is a PhD student at the London School of Geometry and Number Theory. His main interests are arithmetic geometry and its many flavors, like non-Archimedean geometry. He is currently working under the supervision of Sarah Zerbes on topics related to the Bloch-Kato conjecture.

Professor

Jan Maas is a Dutch mathematician working in mathematical analysis and probability theory, with a current focus on optimal transport.

Postdoctoral Fellow

Lorenzo Portinale works in the field of commutative and noncommutative optimal transport, with particular attention to the connections to evolution equations and gradient flows.
