Juniorprof. Gabriele Benedetti

Welcome to my homepage!

Starting from April 2018, I am a Junior Professor in the symplectic workgroup at Heidelberg University.

My research focuses on Hamiltonian dynamical systems and, in particular, on the existence of periodic orbits. The tools I use in my study come from the interplay of differential geometry, topology and the calculus of variation. As an example, I look at the motion of a charged particle in a magnetic field.

I am happy to supervise students for Bachelor and Master theses in English or German. If you are interested feel free to contact me and take a look at the following list of possible topics.

A couple of ways you can reach me:

Phone: +49-6221-54-14228
Office hours: Monday 15:00 - 17:00 and by appointment
Address: Room 3/402, Mathematisches Institut, Im Neueheimer Feld 205, 69120 Heidelberg, Germany
