Will Rushworth

I am a postdoctoral fellow at McMaster University. I obtained my PhD from Durham University under the supervision of Andrew Lobb. My full CV is available here.

I am co-organiser of the Geometry & Topology Seminar.

My mathematical interests are in low dimensional topology: including knot homology, knot and link concordance, and virtual knot theory.

I also have a blog about text book covers.


All comments very welcome.
