I am interested in Geometric Knot Theory. My
research uses topological knot invariants to answer questions
about the geometry of knots. (For example, how much bend or twist does a knot have?) I'm also
interested in optimization and finding ideal knot shapes. (For example, given a
piece of rope of fixed diameter, how much length is needed to tie a knot? What shape is a tight knot?)
My research has applications to biology (for example the shape of folded proteins and DNA) and
to physics (for example classifying glueballs in particle physics).
