In the second quarter of Spring 2017, I am teaching a lecture course in first-year 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 13-16, 2017. Lilla Tóthmérész
will visit me from March 6-10, 2017. I will be at Monash
University in Melbourne, Australia from March 20-31, 2017,
Here are the websites of the Tokyo
Tech topology seminar (Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5) and
topology seminar (Tuesdays from 5 to 6:30).
I am a researcher and instructor of mathematics.
I am fortunate to have spent time at the following

My main research interests are in low-dimensional geometric topology, in particular in contact 3-manifolds 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 one-variable valuations of the Tutte polynomial. Through combinatorics, I found interesting new connections between knot polynomials and Floer homology.
