Richard A. P. Birkett

Hello! I am a PhD candidate at the University of Notre Dame working under the supervision of Jeffrey Diller. I study the dynamics of rational maps in two complex variables using techniques from non-Archimedean geometry and dynamics. I am particularly concerned with the notions surrounding dynamical complexity such as dynamical degrees, algebraic stability, and modifying surfaces to better understand these. When I am not researching maths or teaching, I like to cycle or brew espresso at home.
