Gabor Szekelyhidi

PhD, Imperial College London


Gabor Szekelyhidi received his PhD from Imperial College London in 2006. He held postdoctoral positions at Imperial College London, Harvard University and Columbia University, and a faculty position at the University of Notre Dame. Szekelyhidi joined Northwestern as professor of mathematics in 2022.

Szekelyhidi works in geometric analysis and complex differential geometry. Much of his work is motivated by trying to find canonical geometric objects, such as extremal or Kähler-Einstein metrics on projective manifolds, minimal hypersurfaces, or special Lagrangian submanifolds. 

Szekelyhidi was awarded an NSF CAREER grant in 2014. He was an invited speaker at the 2014 International Congress of Mathematicians.
