Research projects at the interface of topology, materials science and scientific computation.

Students from mathematics as well as other scientific and engineering backgrounds are very welcome.

 

In particular, starting August 2021 the students can work in:

1. Studying the effects of entanglement on the viscoelastic properties of polymeric materials.

 

2. Studying aspects of local and global geometrical and topological characteristics of proteins in order to understand protein folding

 

3. Creation of new measures of topological complexity for open curves in 3-space using Vassiliev measures

Graduate Students: Experience with programming in Python would be preferred. Topology knowledge is not required.

Undergraduate Students: Experience with programming in Matlab or Python is desired but not necessary. Topology knowledge is not required.
