Bruno de Mendonça Braga

Current Position

I am currently a York Science Fellow sponsored by the Simons Foundation, and I am working under the supervision of Ilijas Farah.

I am currently in the job market. You can find my Research Statement here and my Teaching Statement here.

About me

I received both my undergraduate and masters degrees from Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 2009 and 2010, respectively. My undergraduate adviser was Felipe Acker (UFRJ), and my masters adviser was Nicolau Corção Saldanha (PUC-Rio). From 2010 to 2013, I was a PhD student at Kent State University, OH, under the supervision of Joe Diestel (KSU), and, from 2013 to 2017, I was a PhD student at University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) working under the supervision of Christian Rosendal (UIC). I obtained a PhD diploma from both KSU and UIC.

Research Interests

My main area of research is analysis. More specifically, I have been doing research in the following topics:

    • Functional analysis: Banach space theory - linear and nonlinear geometry of Banach spaces.
    • Geometry of metric spaces: embeddings and large scale geometry.
    • Operator algebras: Uniform Roe algebras.
    • Logic: Descriptive set theory of Polish spaces.

Topics such as geometric measure theory, geometric group theory, convex geometry, and asymptotic analysis of finite dimensional normed spaces also interest me very much.
