My name is Yannick Krifka and I am a PhD student at ETH Zürich under the supervision of Prof. Alessandra Iozzi. Starting from October 1st 2021 I will be a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute in Bonn working with Prof. Ursula Hamenstädt.
My research interest is in the interesection of Teichmüller Theory, Dynamics and Geometry. Currently, I am interested in how one can use invariant random subgroups (IRSs) and Benjamini–Schramm convergence to compactify moduli spaces of geometric structures.
Classical examples for dynamical systems are billiards, i.e. a ball bouncing off the sides of some obstacles. Such a billiard can be observed in the background of this homepage.
