Fernanda Florido-Calvo came to HSE University in Nizhny Novgorod from Chile to study mathematics. While on her two-year Master of Science in Mathematics programme, she wrote her master’s thesis and presented it at the All-Russia Contest of Diploma Thesis of Russian Mathematicians 2021, where she won two awards with full marks. Fernanda spoke to the HSE News Service about her passion for mathematics and the paths that lead to HSE University.
Recently the Laboratory of Topological Methods in Dynamics, which is headed by Professor Olga Pochinka on HSE’s Nizhny Novgorod campus, received international status. Professor Pochinka spoke with the HSE News Service about the applied use of research in fundamental mathematics and her grand plans for the future. This interview is the first of a special series on HSE’s international laboratories.
During the New Year holidays, the first international conference on ‘Topological Methods in Dynamics and Related Topics’ was held at HSE. The event was organised by the Department of Fundamental Mathematics of the Faculty of Informatics, Mathematics, and Computer Science (HSE Nizhny Novgorod).
During the January vacation Professors at the Department of Fundamental Mathematics Vyacheslav Grines and Olga Pochinka went to France to conduct joint research in the field of dynamic systems with leading world scholar Christian Bonatti.
