ICERM Postdocs


Postdoctoral Fellows - Fall 2016
Photo Hannah Alpert earned her Ph.D. in Mathematics from MIT in spring 2016. She is currently working in geometry. Dr. Alpert will be at ICERM from September 2016 through May 2017 as an Institute Postdoctoral Fellow. She will begin a position at Ohio State University in the summer of 2017.
Photo Sergey Dyachenko completed his Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of New Mexico under the supervision of Professors Pavel M. Lushnikov and Alexander O. Korotkevich. Dr. Dyachenko’s research interests are water waves, nonlinear waves in optical media, the Keller-Segel model, Bose-Einstein condensation, and numerical simulations. Dr. Dyachenko will be at ICERM from September 2016 to May 2017 as an institute postdoctoral fellow.
Photo Isaac Mabillard completed his Ph.D. in Mathematics at IST Austria under the supervision of Professor Uli Wagner. Dr. Mabillard’s research is at the intersection of three fields: combinatorics, algebraic topology and geometric topology. Dr. Mabillard will be at ICERM from September to December 2016 as a semester postdoctoral fellow. He will begin a position at the University of Chicago in 2017.
Photo Greg Malen completed his Ph.D. in Mathematics at The Ohio State University under the supervision of Professor Matthew Kahle. His research interests include stochastic topology, topological statistical mechanics, and combinatorics. Mr. Malen will be at ICERM from September to December 2016 as a semester postdoctoral fellow.
Photo Jose Alejandro Samper Casas completed his Ph.D. at the University of Washington under the supervision of Professor Isabella Novik. Dr. Samper’s research interests lie in algebraic, geometric and topological combinatorics. His current research focuses on f-vector theory of various classes of simplicial complexes including matroids and simplicial polytopes. Dr. Samper will be at ICERM from September to December 2016 as a semester postdoctoral fellow.
Photo John Wiltshire-Gordon completed his Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Michigan under the supervision of Professor David Speyer. His research interests lie in algebra, topology and combinatorics. Mr. Wiltshire-Gordon will be at ICERM from September to December 2016 as a semester postdoctoral fellow.
Photo Chaim Even Zohar completed his Ph.D. in Mathematics at the Einstein Institute of Mathematics (Hebrew University of Jerusalem) under the supervision of Professor Nati Linial. Dr. Even-Zohar’s research interests include geometric topology, graphs and combinatorics. He will be at ICERM from September 2016 to December 2016 as a postdoctoral fellow. Dr. Even Zohar will return to the University of Illinois/Urbana in 2017.
