I am the director of the new Applied
Algebraic Topology Research Network.
In summer 2015 I am moving to the Department
of Mathematics and Informatics
Institute at the University of
I will be hiring a postdoc there.
In Spring 2015, I am teaching
My current research focus is on applied topology. Particularly,
- combining ideas from topology and statistics to study large,
complex, high-dimensional data sets;
- developing a general framework which quantifies topological
- studying the topology of the configuration space of hard spheres.
I am also interested in homotopy theory, algebra, and models for
