The team

HEGL is the initiative of Prof. Dr. Anna Wienhard, who is the director of the Research Station: Geometry & Dynamics at Heidelberg University and of the Groups and Geometry research group at HITS (Heidelberg Institute of Theoretical Studies).

The new Lab Manager (since September 2021) is Dr. Diaaeldin Taha.

Other members of the Research Station have been active in the creation of the Lab, including: Brice Loustau, Anja Randecker, Nguyen-Thi Dang, Menelaos Zikidis, Valentina Disarlo.

Below is a picture of the Research Station members in 2019:
