William Worden

I am a 6th year graduate student studying low-dimensional geometry and topology under 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.
