I am a Research Associate at the Department of Mathematics, Imperial College London and a member of Dr Dorothy Buck's research group.
Before coming to Imperial, I was a PhD student at the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, University of Cambridge.
I have received my PhD in October 2015.
My advisor is Dr Jacob Rasmussen. In the spring of 2016 I have visited the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn, Germany. I am broadly interested in geometry and topology. My research focuses on knot- and link homology theories which also have deep relationships to representation theory and mathematical physics as well as applications in mathematical biology, in particular DNA topology. ## Contact Information:Imperial College London, Department of Mathematics, 6M50 Huxley Building, South Kensington Campus London SW7 2AZ, UKEmail: p.wedrich(at)gmail(dot)com |
