I am giving a talk on Wednesday 6th of March as part of the Warsztaty Geometrii Różniczkowej (Workshop on Differential Geometry) here at IMPAN Warsaw. The title will be “Odd Jacobi manifolds and Jacobi algebroids”.

In the talk I will outline some of my work on odd Jacobi manifolds as well as their applications to odd contact geometry and Jacobi algebroids (a.k.a generalised Lie algebroids or Lie algebroids in the presence of a one-cocycle). The talk will be largely based on my paper “Odd Jacobi manifolds: general theory and applications to generalised Lie algebroids” Extracta Math.27(1) (2012), 91-123.

I am about to take up a position at the level assistant professor at the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, or IMPAN as it is known. The position is in Warsaw.
