Valeriia Gladkova


Department of Pure Mathematics & Mathematical Statistics, Girton College

PhD thesis: To be confirmed

Research Interests
1. Combinatorics (particularly additive combinatorics)
2. Number Theory


My PhD will focus on various questions in additive combinatorics and its connections to model theory.

Who or what inspired you to pursue your research interests?

I’ve been trying to do research in my free time since school - I suppose I just don’t like not knowing things. There are many open questions in mathematics that feel like we ought to know the answer to and yet we don’t, and that’s irresistible to me. I hope to make at least some progress on these during my PhD.
