Dr Oleg Chalykh


I received my MSc and PhD in mathematics from Moscow State University (Russia). After teaching for several years at Moscow State, I moved on to a postdoctoral position at the Department of Mathematics, Loughborough University between 2000-02. I was a visitng associate professor at Cornell University (USA) in 2002-2004 before moving to Leeds in 2004.     

Research interests

I work in the area of integrable systems, in particular, I am interested in its interaction with geometry and representation theory. This includes studyng rings of differential operators on algebraic varieties, Cheredink and affine Hecke algebras, invariant theory of Coxeter groups, moduli spaces in representation theory and mathematical physics, orthogonal polynomials and special functions, and other topics.
