## Scientific Coordinators

### Samuel Crew

*MPI Security and Privacy and Computer Science, Ruhr University Bochum*

Sam is interested in geometrical aspects of quantum field theory, resurgence and quantum information theory. He is currently at the Max Planck Institute for Security and Privacy and Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany. He completed his PhD in 2021 at the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Nick Dorey and previously worked at the University of Bath. www.samuelcrew.com

### Harini Desiraju

*SMRI, University of Sydney*

Harini Desiraju is a postdoctoral fellow at Sydney Mathematical Research Institute (SMRI) and the University of Sydney in Sydney, Australia. Her research focuses on Integrable systems and conformal field theory. She graduated with a PhD from SISSA, Trieste in 2021 under the supervision of Marco Bertola and Tamara Grava. She has since held positions at University of Birmingham, UK and SLMath (formerly MSRI), US. harini-desiraju.html

### Omar Kidwai

*University of Birmingham, UK*

Omar Kidwai is a research fellow in the Geometry & Mathematical Physics group at the University of Birmingham. He is interested in various geometric aspects of quantum field theory, particularly the role of exact WKB analysis and topological recursion in counting BPS states. He received his DPhil from the University of Oxford in 2018 and spent 2018-2019 as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto. He spent 2019-2022 as a JSPS Postdoctoral Fellow, first at Nagoya University and then the University of Tokyo.

### Gergő Nemes

*Tokyo Metropolitan University*

Gergő Nemes is a specially appointed associate professor at Tokyo Metropolitan University. His research interests include exponential asymptotics, hyperasymptotics, exact WKB analysis and special functions. He completed his PhD under the supervision of Árpád Tóth at the Central European University in Budapest. He subsequently held positions at the University of Edinburgh, at Kindai University and at the Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics. Since 2022, he is a contributing developer of the NIST Digital Library of Mathematical Functions. https://users.renyi.hu/~gergonemes/

### Phil Trinh

*University of Bath, UK*

Phil Trinh is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Bath, and leads a research group on the development of asymptotic methods for problems in the physical sciences. He is the current Director of the Centre for Nonlinear Mechanics at the university. His research is motivated by a range of physical applications in fluid and solid mechanics, from classical hydrodynamics and wave-structure interactions, to thin film flow and thermofluidic problems. His primary area of expertise concerns the study of problems that involve a breakdown of traditional techniques in perturbation theory requiring, e.g. the development of exponential asymptotics or asymptotics beyond-all-orders. Before coming to Bath, he held positions at the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford, and the Department of Mathematics at Princeton University. www.ptrinh.com

## Program Participants

### Fabrizio Del Monte

*University of Sheffield*

Fabrizio Del Monte is a Research Associate in the Algebraic Geometry and Mathematical Physics group at the University of Sheffield, after a CRM-ISM postdoctoral fellowship in Montreal and a PhD in SISSA, Trieste. His research investigates the relation between geometric and analytic aspects of Integrable Systems and nonperturbative aspects of Quantum Fields and String Theory, recently extended to encompass new applications of integrability techniques to Algebraic Geometry and Quiver Representation Theory.

### Nicholas Williams

*Lancaster University*

Nicholas Williams is a postdoctoral researcher in mathematics at Lancaster University in the North West of England. He received his doctorate from the University of Cologne in Germany in 2022 and was subsequently a JSPS Research Fellow at the University of Tokyo. His research focuses on the representation theory of finite-dimensional algebras and has worked on its relation with combinatorics, particularly in relation to cluster algebras. Recently, his interests have expanded to include Donaldson--Thomas theory of quivers with potential and its relation with quadratic differentials. Personal website

### Masazumi Honda

*Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics and RIKEN iTHEMS*

Masazumi Honda is an assistant professor at Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics and visiting scientist at RIKEN iTHEMS. He is interested in quantum field theory, string theory, quantum gravity, resurgence and quantum information theory. He received his Ph.D. in 2013 at SOKENDAI & KEK under the supervision of Jun Nishimura. In the context of resurgence, he wrote several papers on applications to supersymmmetric gauge theories. He recently started to work also on applications to cosmology and quantum gravity. Private website
