Jesse Madnick


This fall, I'll be a postdoc at the University of Oregon. Previously, I was a postdoc at McMaster University (2018-2020) and the National Center for Theoretical Sciences (NCTS) at National Taiwan University (2020-2022). I finished my PhD at Stanford in 2018, advised by Robert Bryant and Rick Schoen.

My research is in differential geometry and geometric analysis. I mainly think about:

  • Minimal Submanifolds & Calibrated Geometry
  • Einstein Metrics & Special Holonomy

My favorite parts of math arise from the geometric aspects of calculus. I like the algebraic and analytic machinery of geometry and topology. I learn best from concrete examples, explicit calculations, and relating modern ideas to their classical counterparts.
