Welcome to the Applied Algebraic Topology Research Network

New: Call for Proposals Due July 15, 2016

Bringing together researchers across the world to develop and use applied algebraic topology.

The Applied Algebraic Topology Research Network promotes and enables collaboration in algebraic topology applied to the sciences and engineering by connecting researchers through a virtual institute. Be part of this community and help us grow this network. Our goal is to help bring people together so that they can collaborate.

We have

  • a weekly interactive seminar
  • a student seminar for people new to the area
  • research teams collaborating by video-conferencing
  • a discussion forum
  • a YouTube channel (new, under development)


Director: Peter Bubenik, University of Florida

Associate Director: Henry Adams, Colorado State University

Executive Committee:

  • Robert Ghrist, University of Pennsylvania
  • Konstantin Mischaikow, Rutgers University
  • Fadil Santosa, Institute for Mathematics and its Applications

Senior contributors:

In addition to the Team Leaders, the following help run the network.

  • Wako Bungula - collects seminar talk slides
  • Harish Chitankunta and Don Sheehy - run the videos section
  • Brittany Fasy - runs the forum
  • Vidit Nanda - moderates seminars when needed
  • Radmila Sazdanovic - sends seminar reminders
  • Mikael Vejdemo Johansson - runs the calendar of applied topology events

If you would like to contribute, please let us know.

The network is supported by the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications through an NSF award DMS-0931945.
