The last year's speaker, Gunther Uhlmann (University of Washington) spoke during the week of March 18-23, 2016 at the CRM. You may find at the link above the videos of his three talks. The videos of the 2014 (Alessio Figalli) and 2015 (André Neves) Nirenberg Lectures can also be accessed from the same link.

I study the existence and/or the uniqueness of closed convex hypersurfaces of the Euclidean space with certain properties, usually by looking at the geometric properties of solutions to appropriate partial differential equations. I am also interested in curvature flows and isoperimetric-type inequalities. One of my current projects focuses on affine invariants of convex bodies and affine invariant inequalities.

Whether a Master's or a PhD, my students' theses combine techniques from differential geometry, analysis and partial differential equations.

- And from the local folklore:

A few years back, my suggestion to shorten a calculus exam was answered by a male colleague with "you must have a lots of domestic duties and not enough time for grading". A male faculty member is said to have a high research grant, if that is the case, but a female's high funding is called a "generous grant". Honi soit qui mal y pense!
