Past von Neumann Fellow

Helen Wong

Affiliation
Mathematics
Field of Study
Quantum Topology, Applications of Topology
From 9/2017 – 7/2018:

Helen Wong’s research is in low-dimensional quantum topology, and applications of topology to molecular biology and quantum computation. She is particularly interested in the relationship between quantum invariants and related constructions (especially the Kauffman bracket skein algebra of a surface) and non-quantum invariants from topology and hyperbolic geometry.
