William Worden

I am currently a G.C. Evans Instructor at Rice University. I recieved my PhD in 2018 from Temple University, under the guidance of Dave Futer. My interests include hyperbolic 3-manifolds & their triangulations, commensurability of 3-manifolds, and experimental mathematics. In my current research I am studying veering triangulations of hyperbolic mapping tori, with an emphasis on experimental methods.
