October 2 colloquium poster

Silvia Ghinassi, Flatness, smoothness, and the Analyst’s Traveling Salesman Theorem

Silvia Ghinassi works in geometric measure theory and its connection to harmonic analysis and PDE. She was a member at Institute for Advanced Study during the 2019/2020 academic year and will be a visitor there this year. She obtained her Ph.D. in May 2019 at Stony Brook University under Raanan Schul.

Giovanni Inchiostro, Wall-crossings for moduli of stable pairs

Giovanni Ichiostro obtained his Ph.D. in 2020 from Brown University under the supervision of Dan Abramovich, and works in algebraic geometry.

Masahiro Nakahara, Uniform potential density of rational points

Masahiro Nakahara’s main research area is arithmetic geometry. He was previously a postdoc at University of Bath before coming to UW, and received his Ph.D. from Rice University.

Harry Richman, The chip firing game on graphs and algebraic curves

Harry Richman completed his Ph.D. at the University of Michigan. Before that, he studied at MIT and spent two semesters in the Math in Moscow program. He is interested in tropical geometry, combinatorics, and math that can be 3D-printed.

Yang Zhang, Microlocal Analysis In Inverse Problems

Yang Zhang’s research interests are inverse problems, integral geometry, and microlocal analysis. She obtained her Ph.D. from Purdue University under the supervision of Prof. Plamen Stefanov.
