Gonzalo Fiz Pontiveros
I graduated with a B.A. in Mathematics at the University of Cambridge. Soon after, I became a member of the "Selection Internationale" program at the E?cole Normale Supe?rieure for the duration of my Master degrees and the first year of PhD.
I obtained my PhD at the University of Cambridge, under the supervision of Prof. Sir W.T. Gowers, FRS.
I have been a postdoctoral fellow for at IMPA (Instituto de Matema?tica Pura e Aplicada) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, working with Prof. R. Morris and later on at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel, working with Prof. G. Kalai. Then, I spent a year as visiting professor at Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina in Floriano?polis, Brazil.
Currently I'm a BGSMath funded postoc, affiliated with the UPC.
My research interests lie primarily in the areas of extremal, probabilistic and additive combinatorics. In particular, I am very interested in the study of discrete random processes and their applications to extremal problems.
