Julia Elisenda (Eli) Grigsby ProfessorBoston College Math Department BC Geometry/Topology Seminar Boston Graduate Topology Seminar (Some) other Boston area topology seminars |

I have particular interest in interactions between Heegaard Floer homology and Khovanov homology,

as well as applications of both theories to questions about braids, Dehn surgery, and concordance.

I am also learning about learning. I blog about that here.

Modern Math Workshop slides

I am co-organizing a triple-header birthday conference in Berkeley (June 25-29, 2018) starring Abby Thompson (60), with supporting cast

members Marty Scharlemann (70) and Rob Kirby (80). A link to the conference website will appear here when we get our act together.

I co-organized the 2016 Hamilton Geometry and Topology Workshop, (August 22-26, 2016), partially supported by my NSF CAREER grant.

I co-organized this topical ICERM workshop (August 4-8, 2014), partially supported by my NSF CAREER grant. See videos of

some of the (excellent) talks here! (Under "Programs and Workshops 2014/Summer 2014")

Here is the website for a graduate reading seminar on the Schoenflies conjecture and generalized property R, co-organized with John Baldwin,

Peter Feller, and Josh Greene during spring 2015.

Here is the website for MT831: Algebraic topology and low-dimensional topology, Fall 2014.

Here is the website for MT855: Applications of homology-type invariants in low-dimensional topology, Spring 2014.

Here is the syllabus for MT216: Intro to Abstract Math, Fall 2013.

Here is the syllabus for MT808: Graduate Algebraic Topology, Fall 2011.

Here is the website for MT210: Linear Algebra, Fall 2010.

Here is the syllabus for MT105: CalculusII-AP, Fall 2009.

Here is the syllabus for the undergraduate knot theory course I taught at Columbia, Fall 2008.

I directed Lisa Piccirillo in a summer research project on Khovanov homology in the Summer of 2011, funded by a BC URF.

Here is the poster she created, summarizing her results.

I co-led a 10-week research program for undergraduates with Jason Behrstock at Columbia University in the Summer of 2008.

Some of the students' final papers:

I blog (even less).

I have a large mathematical family. (A pic from Rob Kirby's 70th birthday conference at MSRI, August 2008, which I co-organized with

Rob Schneiderman,Peter Teichner, and Kevin Walker.)

I am on the board of directors of Girls' Angle, a Cambridge, MA math club for girls.

KEXP is a Seattle-based radio station that everyone should know about.
