Anneleen De Schepper

PhD Student in Mathematics

About Me

My name is Anneleen De Schepper. I'm doing a PhD in Mathematics at Ghent University, funded by the FWO-Flanders and supervised by prof. Hendrik Van Maldeghem. I'm part of the research group Incidence Geometry.

Research

My main research interest is geometry, in particular, buildings. Currently I work on singular Mazzocca-Melone sets. These are families of degenerate quadrics satisfying three axioms. The non-singular version is already neatly classified and I aim for a classification of the singular ones. Prominent examples are the Veronese varieties.

More information on this can be found in the slides below!

    Apart from mathematics, I like swimming, biking and running. One day I might call it triatlon.
