I am a researcher at the Mathematical Institute of the Romanian Academy (Institutul de Matematică Simion Stoilow al Academiei Române), in the Differential Geometry and Algebraic Topology group.

From October 2016 to September 2019 I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Bonn (Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn), in the research group of Carl-Friedrich Bödigheimer.

From October 2015 to September 2016 I was in the Algebraic Topology group of Lionel Schwartz in the Laboratoire Analyse, Géométrie et Applications at Université Paris 13.

From April 2013 to September 2015 I was a postdoc at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, in the research group of Michael Weiss.

Before that (until March 2013) I was a PhD student in the Topology group at the University of Oxford, under the supervision of Ulrike Tillmann.

My research interests are centred around algebraic and geometric topology, including:

  • configuration spaces of various kinds,
  • moduli spaces of manifolds,
  • monopole moduli spaces,
  • surface braid groups, loop braid groups, mapping class groups (their representation theory, lower central series, ...),
  • polynomial functors,
  • group-completions of topological monoids,
  • multi-crossing numbers of knots and links,
  • "big" mapping class groups (mapping class groups of infinite-type surfaces),
  • ...

A summary of my previous work is here (last updated February 2024).

For publication purposes, my last name remains Palmer, but since 20 August 2017 my full last name is Palmer-Anghel :-)
