About myself

A picture of my awkwardly standing against my door

My name is Álvaro del Pino Gómez. I am an Assistant Professor based in Universiteit Utrecht, The Netherlands. I enjoy using techniques from Differential Topology to study tangent distributions.

I have been in Utrecht for a while now: Until September 2018 I held a position as a postdoctoral researcher within the NWO Vici project of Marius Crainic. In Fall 2018 I was awarded an NWO Veni fellowship of my own.

Before coming to the Netherlands I was part of ICMAT (Madrid, Spain). I earned my PhD there, under the supervision of Francisco Presas, in June 2017. During my thesis I worked on two distinct topics: symplectic/contact foliations and Engel structures. Thanks to my thesis work, I was one of the recipients of the “Vicent Caselles 2018” prizes awarded by the RSME (the Spanish Mathematical Society) and the BBVA Foundation.
