Ciprian Manolescu

I am a Professor of Mathematics at Stanford University, in the topology group and the geometry group.

My research interests include gauge theory, low-dimensional topology, and symplectic geometry. I have worked on topics such as the Seiberg-Witten equations, Heegaard Floer theory, and Khovanov homology.

I received my Ph.D. from Harvard in 2004, supervised by Peter Kronheimer. After that, I was a Clay Research Fellow, a postdoc at Princeton, and on the faculty at Columbia and UCLA, before coming to Stanford in 2019.

Here is a more detailed CV, and the pronunciation of my name.
