Created in 2013, the Jean Morlet Chair is a scientific program that welcomes internationally-acclaimed researchers for a six-month residence in the south of France, to conduct collaborative work in residence with a local project leader based at Aix-Marseille University and a thriving community of mathematicians. This international program aims to enhance synergies between academic departments and promotes links between established academics and early career researchers, postdoctoral students and PhD students. Jayadev Athreya served as Chair Jean Morlet in Autumn 2023, working with Nicolas Bédaride at Université Aix-Marseille to conduct research on billiards in polygons and polyhedra, and also with artist Alison Martin to create mathematically inspired artworks.
