hey there!

there should be a picture of me here

fields logo

My name is Ákos Nagy, I am a mathematician, and I was born and raised in Hungary.

I received my Ph.D. from Michigan State University in 2016. My advisor was Tom Parker.

I am a Fields Postdoctoral Fellow in the Fields Institute for the Geometric Analysis Thematic Program working with Spiro Karigiannis. My my sponsor university is the University of Waterloo, where my postdoc mentor is Benoit Charbonneau.

From January, 2018, I will be a William W. Elliott Assistant Research Professor of Mathematics at Duke University, where Mark Stern and Robert Bryant will be my postdoc mentors.

research interests

past and current projects, and future plans

I am mainly interested in geometric analysis and its applications to gauge theory and mathematical physics.

Currently I am working on two projects: The 1st originates from my Ph.D. research, and concerns the geometric-analytic properties of Majorana spinors, and their quantum field theory. The 2nd project is about the construction and the moduli space of BPS monopoles with arbitrary symmetry breaking for the classical (compact) Lie groups. This is a joint work with Benoit Charbonneau. Preprints of both projects are coming soon!

Nowadays I am also trying to learn about Higgs bundles, gauge theory on G2 and Spin(7) manifolds, and supersymmetry.
By the way, if you know a good project in these fields (or in any other fields really) that involves geometric PDE's, shoot me an email!

You can find out more about my research on arXiv, on Google Scholar, or on ORCID.
