I am Peize Liu (刘霈泽, Pinyin: Liú Pèizé, IPA: ljou pʰeɪ tsɤ). I am a first-year Ph.D. student supervised by Dr. Chunyi LiLink opens in a new window and Dr. Christian BöhningLink opens in a new window. I mainly work in algebraic geometry, though I have a wide interest across geometry, category theory, topology, and mathematical physics.

My Master's dissertation is an exposition of Kontsevich's proof of deformation quantisationLink opens in a new window, which is supervised by Prof. Christopher BeemLink opens in a new window. In 1997, Maxim Kontsevich proved the so-called formality theorem, which solved the long-standing problem of the existence and classification of deformation quantisation on Poisson manifolds. This result was listed as one of the four accomplishments in geometry for which he won the 1998 Fields Medal Prize.
