I am a PhD student at the London School of Geometry and Number Theory. I am based at UCL and my supervisor is Dr. Jonny Evans. You can find my CV here.


Research

I work in the field of symplectic geometry. I spend most of my time thinking about the topology of Lagrangian submanifolds. Studying these usually involves understanding some invariants defined using holomorphic curves. These are also interesting in themselves and I quite enjoy finding out more about them.

Publications

  1. M. Konstantinov,   Higher rank local systems in Lagrangian Floer Theory, preprint, 2017
    To obtain some of the results in this paper I used Wolfram Mathematica 10.3. Here is the relevant code:
    • A programme for visualising the boundaries of Maslov 2 discs on the Chiang Lagrangian, lifted to the universal cover S^3 (if your browser has the Wolfram CDF player, you can access an interactive version here).
    • A programme which does the linear algebra in the computation of Floer cohomology with local coefficients for the Chiang Lagrangian (for the entire notebook in CDF format click here).

Teaching

I am a Pure Mathematics tutor for First year. Please email me if you have any questions.


Outreach

Whenever I get the time I quite like talking about maths. Below are some past activities of mine along these lines.
