- I am hiring a postdoc jointly with Dan Chitwood to investigate applications of TDA and image processing to 3D X-Ray CT scans of plants. We expect a start date of Aug 2020, but some wiggle room is possible. Review of applications begins Dec 16 and continues until the position is filled. All postdoc applications at CMSE go to the same job posting, so be sure to be specific about your interests in the cover letter. Please feel free to email me for more information.
- I am teaching CMSE 801 in Spring 2020. The tentative syllabus is here: Draft Syllabus.
- Sarah Tymochko's paper using using persistent homology to measure a diurnal cycle in tropical cyclones is posted on the arXiv. I made a brief, gif-filled twitter synopsis for it here.
