Allison HenrichWith a grant from the Center for Undergraduate Research in Mathematics (CURM), Associate Professor of Mathematics Allison Henrich will lead a team of three undergraduates in knot theory research throughout the 2019-20 academic year. Their research will seek to learn more about knotting complexity by studying unknotting operations on knotted structures. They will also apply their findings to studying topological-combinatorial games. For more information about CURM grants, visit their website:

Henrich coauthored the book An Interactive Introduction to Knot Theory, which was published by Dover Publications, Inc., Mineola, New York (2017). She is coauthor of A Mathematician's Practical Guide to Mentoring Undergraduate Research, to be published jointly this year by the Mathematical Association of America, the American Mathematical Society and the Council on Undergraduate Research.
