Owen Gwilliam

I am currently an postdoctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn. For the academic year 2014-5, I was here as an NSF postdoctoral fellow, sponsored by Peter Teichner. From fall 2012 to spring 2014, I was a postdoc at UC Berkeley, sponsored by Kolya Reshetikhin.

Research

My research revolves around quantum field theory, focusing both on applications of homotopical ideas to QFT itself and applications of QFT to geometry and representation theory. My books and papers are described below.

There are several other projects at various stages of development. If you'd like to know more, feel free to contact me.

Notes

Activities

With Claudia Scheimbauer, I recently taught a course on derived deformation theory and Koszul duality at the University of Bonn. Here is our website.

In spring 2013 (in Berkeley) and in fall 2014 (at MPIM), Peter Teichner and I organized seminars on factorization algebras and BV quantization. (Notes from the first seminar can be found here and the plan of the second seminar can be found here.) In fall 2015 I organized a seminar on topological insulators with Alessandro Valentino.

I've also been lucky to be an organizer of several conferences in the last two years (at the Simons Center, Banff, IBS-CGP, and Oberwolfach). I'm taking a break from that for a while.
