In Riemannian geometry, collapse imposes strong geometric and topological restrictions on
the spaces on which it occurs. In the case of Alexandrov spaces, which generalize Riemannian manifolds with a lower sectional curvature bound, collapse is fairly well understood in dimension
three. In this talk I will discuss the topology of sufficiently collapsed Alexandrov 3-spaces: when
the space is irreducible, it is modeled on one of the eight three-dimensional dimensional Thurston geometries, excluding the hyperbolc one. This extends a result of Shioya and Yamaguchi, originally
formulated for Riemannian manifolds, to the Alexandrov setting. (Joint with Luis Guijarro and Jesús Núñez-Zimbrón).
