Applied Knot Theory Group
We work at the interface of Topology, Biology and Materials Science. We are interested in the effects of entanglement in physical systems. Our focus is in both the mathematical theory and in the application of rigorous mathematical tools through computations and simulations to discover the origins of mechanical properties of materials and function of biopolymers.
