Louis-Clément LEFÈVRE

I'm a postdoctoral researcher in Mathematics at the Universität Duisburg-Essen in Germany in the group of Prof. Dr. Jochen HEINLOTH. I defended my Ph.D. thesis on June 25th 2018 at the Institut Fourier in Grenoble under the supervision of Philippe EYSSIDIEUX.

Last update: June 2021.

Research

My field of research is the topology of complex algebraic varieties and the study of moduli spaces of representations of their fundamental groups. The methods that I use come from Hodge theory (mixed Hodge structures, variations of Hodge structure, Hodge modules) as well as formal deformation theory (functors of Artin rings, differential graded Lie algebras) and homotopy theory (rational homotopy, algebraic structures up to homotopy).

Ph.D. thesis

Title: Théorie de Hodge mixte et variétés des représentations des groupes fondamentaux des variétés algébriques complexes (Mixed Hodge theory and representation varieties of fundamental groups of complex algebraic varieties).

Other activities at the Université Grenoble Alpes

Ph.D. seminar

With Alejandro RIVERA we organized in 2016–2018 the Ph.D. seminar of the Institut Fourier. Every week a speaker, from the Institut Fourier or from the outside, is invited to talk about a subject of his choice (not necessarily related to his research) in an understandable way for our Ph.D. students.

Working groups

With Pedro MONTERO we organized every year our own working group for PhD students. The goal is to read a book together with one talk a week, on a quite large topic around complex algebraic geometry.

Personal

On Summer I go surfing waves. For this I traveled to Portugal (Peniche, Summer 2013, Summer 2014, Spring 2018), to Morocco (Imessouane, Summer 2015), to Indonesia (Bali, Summer 2016), and I'm used to going to the French South-West coast (Vieux-Boucau is my home spot). I also traveled to Chile (Valparaíso, Summer 2019).

I'm learning and practicing regularly latin couple dances: Salsa and mainly Bachata. I participated to dance festivals in Düsseldorf (March 2019, February 202O), Lyon (April 2019), Cologne (October 2019), Amsterdam (November 2019), Prague (February 2020).
