A Picture of Professor Tu

About Me


I am Professor of Mathematics in the Mathematics Department at Tufts University. The photo above is Chateau Chenonceau in the Loire Valley in France in 2008.

I attended McGill University and Princeton University as an undergraduate, and obtained my Ph.D. from Harvard University under the supervision of Phillip A. Griffiths. My thesis was published as a Memoir of the American Mathematical Society under the title Hodge Theory and the Local Torelli Problem.

Before coming to Tufts, I had taught at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore. I was a member of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton for a year and a visitor at the Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris as well as at the Université Paris 7 Diderot for extended periods.

An algebraic geometer by training, I have done research at the interface of algebraic geometry, topology, and differential geometry, including Hodge theory, degeneracy loci, moduli of vector bundles, and equivariant cohomology. These days I work mainly in algebraic topology and in tensor analysis, more specifically on equivariant cohomology and in coordinate-free tensor analysis.

Editorial Responsibilities


A picture of the series Development in MathematicsDevelopment in Mathematics, Series Editor.

This Springer book series publishes well-written monographs in pure and applied mathematics, aimed at researchers, postdocs, and advanced graduate students. Ideally, each book should be self-contained and fairly comprehensive in treating a topic in current research. A unique and engaging approach with potential relationships to other fields are most welcome. If you have a suitable manuscript, do not hesitate to contact me.

Asian-European Journal of Mathematics publishes high quality research papers in the fields of contemporary pure and applied mathematics with a broad range of topics including algebra, analysis, topology, geometry, functional analysis, number theory, differential equations, operational research, combinatorics, theoretical statistics and probability, theoretical computer science and logic. Although the journal focuses on the original research articles, it also welcomes survey articles and short notes. All papers will be peer-reviewed within approximately four months.
