UNCG Research congratulates Dr. Greg Bell on his new funding from the University of Minnesota Institute for Mathematics and its Applications. His project, entitled “Scientific and Engineering Applications of Algebraic Topology,” received $20,000 in funding.
The Institute for Mathematics and its Applications offers a remarkable opportunity for mid-career research mathematicians to diversify their research interests and collaborate with other members of academia and industry in their New Directions Research Professorship. Next year, the IMA is hosting a thematic year on Scientific and Engineering Applications of Algebraic Topology. Through the New Directions Professorship, I’ve been invited to participate in the thematic year program. I will apply my expertise in topology, dimension theory, and group theory to work with leading researchers in computational topology to develop methods for qualitative analysis in data, networks, and dynamical systems.
