Classical work by Thurston in the theory of surfaces gives symplectic co-ordinate charts on Teichmüller space, associated to quadratic differentials. Motivated by wall crossing in 4d field theories Gaiotto, Moore and Neitzke defined a generalization of these; giving maps from the moduli of one dimensional local systems on a spectral curve to the moduli space of n-dimensional local systems on a non-compact Riemann surface. I will describe joint work with M. Ionita which extends this construction to arbitrary reductive algebraic groups G. Time permitting I will describe the interpretation of this construction in terms of the wild Riemann--Hilbert Correspondence in the closely related setting of Frobenius manifolds.
