**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. An introduction to modern day Poisson geometry can be found in the book:

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

In the Fall 2022 I will be teaching Math 417 - Introduction to Abstract Algebra and in the Spring 23 I will teach Math 522 - Lie Groups and Lie Algebras.
