Liron Speyer

I am a Whyburn Instructor at The University of Virginia. I was previously based at Osaka University as a JSPS Postdoctoral Fellow working with Professor Susumu Ariki. Before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher visiting Dr Sinéad Lyle at the University of East Anglia, supported by the LMS Postdoctoral Mobility Grant. I completed my PhD in the School of Mathematical Sciences at Queen Mary University of London, under the supervision of Dr Matthew Fayers.
