Yonatan Gutman

Welcome to the Webpage of Yonatan Gutman

I am an Associate Professor at the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

I have held postdoctoral positions at Tel Aviv University, Université Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée (Chateaubriand Fellow), University of Cambridge and University of Oxford. I received my Ph.D. from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem under the supervision of Benjamin Weiss. I hold a M.Sc. in Mathematics from Stanford University and a B.A. in Mathematics and Physics from the Technion.
