*** I am happy to note that Vadim Kaloshin has accepted to deliver the 2019 Nirenberg Lectures (January 22-25, 2019, CRM).**
The 2018 Nirenberg Lectures in Geometric Analysis
were delivered at the CRM by Eugenia Malinnikova (NTNU, Trondheim) during
the week of March 12-16, 2018.The videos of her three talks as well as videos of the lectures given by the 2014 speaker
(Alessio Figalli), 2015 speaker (André Neves), 2016 speaker (Gunther Uhlmann) and, respectively,
2017 speaker (Camillo De Lellis) can be found on line at the link above.

In 2017, the Montreal Math Circle benefitted
from an NSERC Promoscience grant and an endowment grant of the Canadian Mathematical Society which, together with the invaluable
logistic support of the ISM,
allowed us to offer a week long
math camp
in June 2017. ** Our NSERC Promoscience grant has been renewed for 2018 and we were happy to offer again a
summer math camp for
high school students. **

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.
