Speaker Series: Genevieve Walsh

genevievewalshGeometric Topology and Group Theory

On Thursday April 11 at 4:30 PM in Science Center Hall C, GIIM hosted Tufts University Professor of Mathematics Genevieve Walsh, who gave a talk on low-dimensional topology, group actions, and her experience as a woman graduate student, mathematical researcher, and professor.

Speaker Bio: Genevieve Walsh is a geometric topologist interested in problems in both geometric topology and geometric group theory. She studies groups acting on spaces in a variety of contexts: groups acting on hyperbolic space with quotient the complement of a knot in S3, groups acting on trees, how to make a “good” space for a group to act on, and the many ways a particular group can act on a particular space.
