# Hi! I'm Ian Banfield

I am a Ph.D student in Mathematics at Boston College, working with Eli Grigsby.

I am interested in low-dimensional topology, knots and braids, and homological invariants thereof. The focus of my current work is to study connections between geometric properties of links and algebraic structures on the braid group.
