How to get to my office

e-mail:  wendl at math dot hu dash berlin dot de

Sprechstunde / office hours:
Dienstags 14:00-15:00 / Tuesdays 2-3pm
Aktuell findet meine Sprechstunde nur virtuell durch den folgenden Zoom-Link statt: hu-berlin.zoom.us/j/98760164105. Wenn Sie darauf klicken, kommen Sie zuerst in einen virtuellen Warterraum. Falls ich gerade in einem privaten Gespräch mit jemand anderem bin, müssen Sie ggf. einige Minuten warten, bevor Sie zugelassen werden. Wichtig: Verwenden Sie bei Zoom Ihren echten Namen. Da der Link im Prinzip der ganzen Welt öffentlich zugänglich ist, werde ich Sie nicht in die Sprechstunde hereinlassen, wenn ich keine Ahnung habe, wer Sie sind.

Currently my office hour takes place virtually, via the following Zoom link: hu-berlin.zoom.us/j/98760164105. If you click on it at the appointed time, you will at first arrive in a virtual waiting room. If I'm in the middle of a private conversation with someone else, you may have to wait several minutes before I let you in. Important: Please use your real name on Zoom. Since the link is publicly available, I will not let you into my office hour if I have no idea who you are.

This is me, wielding my trusty water bottle to protect Imperial China from Mongol invasion.


Forschung / Research

My research is in symplectic and contact topology, particularly the theory of pseudoholomorphic curves, applications to contact manifolds, and symplectic field theory.

Here is my publications page.

I am an editorial advisor for the Proceedings / Journal / Bulletin / Transactions of the LMS, in the area of symplectic and contact topology.

Seminars of interest:

Upcoming conferences / workshops:

(Note: the above used to be a list of events that I was personally planning to attend, but then I learned that some people are actually using it to find out what's going on, so I've added more events that I won't necessarily be attending. Thus if your main goal is to stalk me, this list will be only partially helpful.)

And some conferences in the recent past.

Past events that I organized:

A Frequently Asked Question

Question: Aren't you German?

Answer: No. Don't let my name, or my appearance, or the fact that I teach at a German university or that you've overheard me speaking German with colleagues fool you. I am, in fact, not German.

An Occasionally Asked Question

Question: Where did you learn to speak English so well?

Answer: It is my native language.

A Question That Is Asked Far More Often Than It Should Be

Question: Where did you learn to speak German so well?

Answer: I don't speak German that well, it only sounds like it if you don't listen carefully.


Some nonmathematical things

Trockne Blumen (the reason why I once spent a whole week learning musixtex, and then promptly forgot it)
