Rényi Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences
Márton Elekes received his Ph.D. (with distinction) in 2002 at Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest under the supervision of Miklós Laczkovich. His thesis title was Set-Theoretical Methods in Real Analysis.
Since 2002 he has been a Research Fellow at the Rényi Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, except for two one-year visiting positions at the Fields Institute in Toronto. He also holds a position at the Mathematical Institute of Eötvös Loránd University.
His awards include a 2008 Young Researcher Award and a 2008-2011 Bolyai János Re- search Fel low both awarded by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and the 2006 Öveges Scholarship awarded by the Hungarian National Office for Research and Technology. Professor Elekes' recent invited lectures include the Logic and Mathematics 2008 conference in Urbana-Champaign, the 2008 Advances in Set-Theoretic Topology: Conference in Honour of Tsugunori Nogura on his 60th Birthday conference held in Erice, Sicily and the 2007 Logic Colloquium 2007 in Wroclaw, Poland. His work focuses on various branches of real analysis such as measure theory, geometric measure theory, real functions and descriptive set theory, and also on the connection between these fields and set theory.
