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.
