  • Robin Forman (Emeritus)
    Relationships between topology and analysis, with an emphasis on ideas from mathematical physics.
  • Shelly Harvey
    Low-dimensional topology and geometry, group theory, and non-commutative algebra.
  • John Hempel (Emeritus)
    Topology of manifolds and associated algebraic problems, primarily in group theory.


  • Neil Fullarton
