David BenZvi
Faculty Profile 

Research Description
Professor BenZvi is interested in the interface between representation theory, algebraic geometry and mathematical physics. One focus of his current research is a new approach, joint with David Nadler, to the representation theory of real and complex Lie groups built from a combination of the geometric Langlands program, topological field theory and derived algebraic geometry. Another program in which is he involved with Tom Nevins, applies noncommutative geometry, in particular the geometry of differential operators, to questions concerning integrable systems. He is also interested in the applications of algebraic structures coming from physics (such as conformal field theory and vertex algebras) to the geometry of moduli spaces.

I'd like to work with this faculty member. What should I do next?
Now that you've used EUREKA to identify a faculty member whose research interests match your own, read about getting involved in research at The University of Texas at Austin.
The Office of Undergraduate Research recommends that you attend an info session before contacting faculty members about research opportunities. We'll cover the steps to getting involved, tips for contacting faculty, funding possibilities, and options for course credit.
If you aren't able to attend an info session, contact the Office of Undergraduate Research to schedule an appointment with an advisor.
