Curriculum Vitae
Areas of Interest
Alexey Tuzhilin investigates low-dimensional geometrical variational problems, including various generalizations of Steiner Problem on finding shortest networks (Steiner minimal trees).
He pays special attention to one-dimensional minimal fillings in Gromov’s sense.
In addition, he researches on the geometry of Gromov-Hausdorff space, i.e., the space of isometry classes of compact metric spaces. Alexey Tuzhilin obtained his main results in collaboration with Alexander O. Ivanov.
