Irem Portakal


I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Institut for Algebra and Geometry at Otto-von-Guericke Universität Magdeburg. I defended my thesis in April 2018 at Freie Universität Berlin. I was a PHD Student in Berlin Mathematical School and in the Algebraic Geometry Group of Klaus Altmann. Before, I was a master student at Ecole Normale Superieure in Lyon.
