For potential PhD students: interested in doing a Ph.D. in geometry at Oxford under my guidance? here is a very brief survey of symplectic topology, Floer theory and Fukaya categories in under 10 slides!
(If you do apply, keep in mind that early applications, say in November, are more likely to obtain scholarship funding)
