James Farre

I am a JProf in mathematics at Heidelberg University. I'm interested in surfaces, hyperbolic 3-manifolds of infinite volume, bounded cohomology, Teichmüller theory, dynamics on character varieties, and related objects.

I completed my PhD in 2019 with Kenneth Bromberg at the University of Utah. In 2019-20, I was an NSF postdoctoral research fellow at Yale University where my sponsoring scientist was Yair Minsky. I was also a member (and organizer) of the virtual MSRI program Fall 2020. I was a postdoc in Beatrice Pozzetti's research group in Heidelberg Spring 2021, and a Gibbs assistant professor at Yale 2021-2022.
