**Rui Loja Fernandes**

I am the Lois M. Lackner Professor of Mathematics at the Mathematics Department of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

My research interests include Poisson and symplectic geometry, Lie theory and integrable systems. One can find information about activities in Poisson geometry in North America and in the rest of the world in the Poisson geometry web page.

I am an Associate Editor of Portugaliae Mathematica and of the Journal of Geometric Mechanics.

In the Fall 2019 I will be teaching Math 417 - Introduction to Abstract Algebra and Math 520 - Symplectic Geometry. In the Fall 2020, I will be teaching Math 595 - Poisson Geometry.
