# Martin Palmer-Anghel

**NOTE:** I have moved to *IMAR* (the Mathematical Institute of the Romanian Academy) — please see my main website at mdp.ac.

I am a postdoctoral researcher, working with Carl-Friedrich Bödigheimer, in the topology group of the University of Bonn.

Previously: From October 2015 to September 2016 I was in the Algebraic Topology group of Lionel Schwartz in the Laboratoire Analyse, Géométrie et Applications at Université Paris 13. From 2013 to September 2015 I was a postdoc at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, in the research group of Michael Weiss. Until March 2013 I was a PhD student in the Topology group at the University of Oxford, under the supervision of Ulrike Tillmann.

### Research interests

My research interests are in algebraic and geometric topology, so far focusing on different kinds of configuration spaces and moduli spaces of submanifolds (in particular also braid groups and mapping class groups), and the phenomenon of homological stability.

My main website is mdp.ac.

My CV is here.

### Note

Until August 2017, my last name was Palmer; since then, it is Palmer-Anghel. However, for the sake of consistency, I continue to use just the first half for publications.
