Profile

Reto Buzano (born Reto Mueller) is a Senior Lecturer in Pure Mathematics. His research is in geometric analysis, nonlinear geometric partial differential equations and the calculus of variations with emphasis on geometric flows (Ricci Flow, Harmonic Ricci Flow, Mean Curvature Flow), minimal surfaces, and higher-dimensional conformal geometry. His research has been supported by several funding bodies including EPSRC and the London Mathematical Society.

Reto obtained his PhD in Mathematics from ETH Zurich in 2009. He has then held positions at the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, the University of Warwick, and Imperial College London, before joining the School of Mathematical Sciences at Queen Mary University of London in 2013.
