KOSTADINKA LAPKOVA



I hold a PhD degree in Mathematics from the joint graduate program of Central European University and Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.


My PhD thesis was defended in May 2012. I worked on class number problems for quadratic fields under the supervision of András Biró (Rényi Institute).


CV PhD Thesis


Currently I live in Vienna and expect any moment the arrival of my baby-daughter but I hope to return to Budapest for a post-doc after the maternity leave.
