Tom Körner is Professor of Fourier Analysis at the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics.
His main research has been in the behaviour of Fourier transforms towards infinity and he has constructed several intricate counterexamples in analysis. He is also the author of The Pleasures of Counting, a popular introduction to the application of mathematics in the real world.
Director of Studies
Dr Tokieda grew up as a painter in Japan, became a classical philologist in France, learnt basic mathematics from Russian collections of problems (сборники задач), then was taught topology by W. Browder, physics of fluids by 今井功 and dynamical systems by A. Chenciner, inter alia.
He has lived in 6 countries so far.
Dr Giannelli is a researcher at the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics.
His main research interests are Representation theory of finite groups, symmetric groups, combinatorics and profinite groups.
Dr Thorne is a Clay Research Fellow and Reader in Number Theory at the University of Cambridge.
His primary research interests are algebraic number theory and representation theory, and the diverse connections between these two subjects. Most recently he has been interested in using automorphy lifting techniques to establish new cases of the Fontaine-Mazur conjecture.
