Biography

Dmitri Panov graduated from Moscow State University in 1998. He received his PhD from Ecole Polytechinque France in 2005, under the supervision of Maxim Kontsevich. From 2005-2010 he was a post-doc researcher at Imperial College London and then in 2010 he joined King’s College London as a Royal Society Research Fellow. He was promoted to Senior Research Fellow in 2012, Reader in 2015 and to Professor of Geometry in 2020.

Research interests

Dmitri's research area is geometry, mainly complex, symplectic, and hyperbolic. In particular, he studies geometric structures called polyhedral Kahler structures, and as well definite connections.

Polyhedral Kahler manifolds are triangulated manifolds with a specific choice of a Euclidean metric on each simplex, defining a singular Kahler metric on the whole manifold. Loosely speaking such manifolds attempt to discretise Kahler geometry. An example of a definite connection is a metric connection with non-vanishing curvature on a 3-bundle over a 4-manifold. The unit vector sub-bundle of a bundle with definite connection has a natural symplectic structure, thus we get a fruitful link between smooth 4-manifolds and symplectic 6-manifolds with new examples and conjectures.
