Dr Martin Winter
Dr Martin WinterResearch Fellow 
I am a postdoc working with Agelos Georgakopoulos funded by the EPSRC grant "Graph Theory in Higher Dimensions". Starting in July I will be Dirichlet Fellow at TU Berlin. I am also PI in the priority program "Combinatorial Synergies" by the German Research Foundation with my project "Wachspress Coordinates  a Bridge betwen Algebra, Geometry and Combinatorics". From April 2025 I will conduct this project at the MaxPlanckInstitute for Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig (Germany).
My main mathematical interest is Geometry in its broadest sense, including discrete, algebraic, convex and computational, also touching on many aspects of graph theory, topology and representation theory. I work(ed) and published on
 polyhedral combinatorics and geometry,
 graph theory (spectral, algebraic, geometric and topological),
 rigidity theory, geometric constraint system and real algebraic geometry,
 lowdimensional topology (knot theory, embeddings and embeddability of graphs and complexes, ...)
 symmetries of discrete and geometric objects, finite group theory and real representation theory,
 algebraic combinatorics (association schemes, distance regular graphs, codes ...),
 convex geometry,
 random structures and graph limits,
 discrete dynamical systems, ...
Where you can meet me next ...
 I will participate in the Summer School "Algebraic Combinatorics" at the Max Planck Institute in Leipzig (July 15  19, 2024)
 I am invited speaker at the Annual Conference of the SPP2458 "Combinatorial Synergies" in Osnabrück (September 11  13, 2024)

(!!) Rainer Sinn and me are organizing a twoday workshop "Wachspress Geometry" at the University of Leipzig on September 2425. See here for an early workshop website.
