William Worden

I am a 5th year graduate student studying low-dimensional geometry and topology under Dave Futer. My interests include hyperbolic 3-manifolds & knot theory, mapping class groups, commensurability of 3-manifolds, and experimental mathematics. In my current research I'm studying volumes of certain arborescent links, and trying to shed some new light on veering triangulations of mapping tori using experimental methods.
