About Us

Our interests


Welcome to the “Geometric structures” group of Utrecht University. Previously known as the “Poisson Geometry group”, we find “geometric structures” as a more faithful description of the interests of our group (although we do keep the name “Friday Fish seminar” for our Friday activities). Indeed, our interests are in the study of various geometric structures, such as:

What we do


We study such structures from a differential geometric or topological point of view such as:

We use tools that come from differential geometry and topology, algebraic topology and analysis. We are also interested in the applications (or just the relevance) of such structures to various parts of Mathematical Physics and to the geometry of PDEs (partial differential equations).
