Current activity
In the Spring and Fall semesters of 2015, I am teaching two
lecture courses in firstyear linear algebra. For
further information, please visit the website for the class
M and for the class
V.

Professional Information
I am a researcher and instructor of mathematics. I live
with my wife Makiko
and our two daughters.
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 a new polynomial invariant of integer polymatroids
that generalizes a onevariable valuation of the Tutte
polynomial. Through combinatorics, I found interesting new
connections between knot polynomials and Floer homology.
