Yannik Schuler

Algebraic Geometer and Mathematical Physicist

Hi! I am a research associate in the group of Dhruv Ranganathan. In September I will be joining Rahul Pandharipande’s group as a postdoc for two years. I did my PhD under the supervision of Andrea Brini in the Algebraic Geometry and Mathematical Physics group in Sheffield.

My research focuses questions about enumerative invariants and the geometry of their moduli spaces — mostly in the framework of Gromov–Witten theory. Often these questions are inspired by topological quantum field theories. For instance currently I am working on a mathematical formulation of the refined topological string which I expect will allow us to study topological M-theory indirectly.

I did my undergraduate studies in Bonn and wrote my Master thesis in Physics under the supervision of Albrecht Klemm and Gaëtan Borot.
