Section: 6- Several Complex Variables, Logic and Operator algebras
Hello! I am Tuyen Truong, a new Associate Professor at the Department. I am very excited to work here at University of Oslo, with a long tradition of strong research and teaching, where Niels Henrik Abel used to be. My research is in Several Complex Variables, Dynamical Systems and related topics in Algebraic Geometry. I am also keen to applications of these fields. Originally from Vietnam, I traveled all around the world studying, working and leisure: Indiana University (USA) PhD, 2006-2012, under the supervision of Professor Eric Bedford; Syracuse University (USA), Postdoc, 2012 - 2014; Korea Institute for Advanced Study (South Korea), Postdoc, 2014-2015; and The University of Adelaide (Australia), Postdoc 2015 - 2017; before coming here to Oslo. My PhD dissertation was on pullback of positive closed currents by meromorphic maps. Some of my current research topics are: algebraic interpolation, embedding of algebraic curves in the complex plane, geometry and dynamics of Abelian varieties and their quotients, relations between Weil's Riemann hypothesis and standard conjectures and dynamical systems. My hobbies include: reading, swimming and diving, listening to music, hanging out with friends, travelling, playing the game of Go, and solving mazes.
