Associate Professor of Mathematics
Algebraic Topology, Noncommutative Algebraic Geometry
Gonçalo Tabuada was born in Lisbon and raised in Almada, Portugal. At the beginning of the millennium he moved to Paris to study mathematics. He received his M.Sc. degree from École Polytechnique in 2003 and his Ph.D. degree from Université Paris Diderot - Paris 7 in 2007 under the
supervision of Bernhard Keller. Between 2007 and 2011 he was an assistant professor at Universidade Nova de Lisboa, holding visiting appointments at Université Paul Sabatier, UCLA, University of Göttingen, Max Planck Institute for Mathematics, and MIT. In 2008 he was the recipient of the Estímulo à Investigação prize awarded by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. In 2011 he joined the Department of Mathematics of MIT as an assistant professor. In 2014, Tabuada received an NSF CAREER Award.
Tabuada's research interests are broad. They include (algebraic) topology, (noncommutative) algebraic geometry, (algebraic) K-theory, (homological) algebra, (noncommutative) motives, and their various interactions.
