Nikita Nikolaev

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Section of Mathematics of the University of Geneva in Switzerland.
I am a member of the research group of Anton Alekseev.

I completed my PhD in Mathematics at the University of Toronto in 2018.
My PhD advisor was Marco Gualtieri, and my thesis is titled Abelianisation of Logarithmic Connections.
I am a mathematical descendant of Nigel Hitchin.

My research area is in Complex Algebraic Geometry with relation to Quantum Field Theory and String Theory.
My work revolves around the study of the moduli spaces of meromorphic flat connections and Higgs bundles, as well as quantum curves, topological recursion, and the WKB method. You can learn more on my research page.
