Each year, the UW Department of Mathematics welcomes many visitors. These visitors, who come for varying periods of time, teach classes and participate in our seminars and research. They make significant contributions to the life of the department. These visitors come from all over the world, and this attests to the international nature of mathematics and to the department's attractiveness as a center of mathematical research and teaching. Many visitors come for only a few days or a week, but some stay for a quarter or more. Here is a list of this year's long-term visitors:
Federico Ardila, Visiting Assistant Professor (Autumn), visiting from Microsoft Research. Professor Ardila studies combinatorics and geometry.
Rami Atar, Visiting Associate Professor, visiting from Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. Professor Atar studies stochastic processes, control and partial differential equations.
Carsten Lange, Visiting Assistant Professor (Autumn, Winter), visiting from TU Berlin. Professor Lange studies geometric combinatorics.
Valerey Serov, Visiting Associate Professor (Winter, Spring), visiting from the University of Oulu, Finland. Professor Serov studies inverse problems, spectral theory, and nonlinear equations with applications in optics.
Vladimir Sharafutdinov, Visiting Professor (Autumn), visiting from the Sobolev Institute of Mathematics. Professor Sharafutdinov studies differential geometry and topology.
