Dimitrios Ntalampekos


My primary research interests lie in the fields of Complex Analysis and Analysis on Metric Spaces. Topics include uniformization and rigidity problems in the plane and in metric spaces, quasiconformal geometry of fractal surfaces and metric spaces, and complex dynamics. My current work often relies on an extension of classical results in geometry and analysis to a non-smooth or fractal setting.

My research is partially supported by NSF Grant DMS-2000096 and NSF Grant DMS-2246485.
