Current activity
My graduate seminar meets online from 2 to 4 pm on Tuesdays. I
teach graduate Differential Topology on Mondays from
10:4512:25.
Here is a combined schedule for all Tokyo
Tech mathematics seminars, including our Topology
seminar. See also the Komaba
topology
seminar. Or, actually, you can now attend any math seminar in the
world!

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. I work on
graphs and hypergraphs, too. I introduced two new polynomial
invariants of integer polymatroids that generalize
onevariable valuations of the Tutte polynomial. Recently this
has led to a full twovariable extension. Through
combinatorics, I found interesting new connections between
quantum knot polynomials and Floer homology.
