Homepage of Ralph L. Klaasse
I am a postdoctoral researcher in the geometry group of the Université libre de Bruxelles, working with Joel Fine. I obtained my Ph.D. from Utrecht University under supervision of Gil Cavalcanti, and was a member of the Geometric Structures group led by Marius Crainic.
My research interests consist mainly of Poisson geometry and generalized complex geometry, specifically the usage of Lie algebroids to extend symplectic techniques to this setting. Moreover, I am interested in surrounding areas such as symplectic geometry, Seiberg-Witten gauge theory, Dirac geometry, index theory, and low-dimensional topology. Recently, I am moreover interested in hypersymplectic geometry and the study of symplectic Lie groupoids.
