Current activity
In the second quarter of Spring 2017, I am teaching a lecture
course in
firstyear linear algebra. For further
information, please visit the website for the class (coming
soon).
My graduate seminar meets on Tuesday afternoons from 1:30 to
4:15 in
room 342.
I will speak at the 12th
East
Asian School of Knots and Related Topics, held in Tokyo
from
February 1316, 2017. Lilla
Tóthmérész will visit me from March 610, 2017. I will
be at Monash
University in Melbourne, Australia from March 2031, 2017,
visiting Dan
Mathews.
Here are the websites of the Tokyo
Tech
topology seminar (Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5) and the Komaba
topology
seminar (Tuesdays from 5 to 6:30).
Professional Information
I am a researcher and instructor of mathematics.
I am fortunate to have spent time at the following
great
institutions:

Research
My main research interests are in lowdimensional geometric
topology,
in particular in contact 3manifolds and Legendrian knots (and
their
Floer homologies), as well as in classical knot invariants
such as the
Homfly polynomial. Recently I started doing work on graphs and
hypergraphs, too. I introduced two new polynomial invariants
of integer
polymatroids that generalize onevariable valuations of the
Tutte
polynomial. Through combinatorics, I found interesting new
connections
between knot polynomials and Floer homology.
