Calvin McPhailSnyder, Phillip Griffiths Assistant Research Professor
My work lies in quantum topology: I used ideas from mathematical physics and representation theory to study of topological objects like knots and manifolds. Much of my work is connected to the ChernSimons topological quantum field theory, in particular its realization in terms of quantum groups. In particular, I am interested in versions of these constructions that include geometric data like hyperbolic structures.  Contact Info:
