Alvaro Gonzalez Hernandez

Hola! I am a first year PhD student in algebraic geometry and number theory under the supervision of Professor Gavin BrownLink opens in a new window and Dr Damiano TestaLink opens in a new window. Here is my CVLink opens in a new window.

Education

I studied the MSc in Mathematical Sciences at the University of Oxford and the BSc in Mathematics at the Universidad de Salamanca (Spain). My master’s dissertation was about Local fields and the Hasse principleLink opens in a new window and was supervised by Prof. Victor FlynnLink opens in a new window. My bachelor’s degree final thesis was about Continued fractionsLink opens in a new window and was supervised by Prof. Luis M. Navas VicenteLink opens in a new window.
