## Bio

Harry Tamvakis received his B.S. (Ptychion) in Mathematics from the University of Athens in 1990, and his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in 1997. After holding postdoctoral and Assistant Professor positions at the University of Pennsylvania and Brandeis University, respectively, he joined the faculty at Maryland in 2006.

## Research

Tamvakis' research lies mainly in algebraic geometry and intersection theory, with a focus on the homogeneous spaces of Lie groups and Schubert calculus. He has studied problems in Arakelov theory, quantum cohomology, and the theory of degeneracy loci. The work connects many different areas of mathematics, such as number theory, complex differential geometry, representation theory, and algebraic combinatorics.
