I organise the Topological Data Analysis Seminar at the University of Oxford. Our past events can be found here. If you are interested in giving a talk at our seminar please get in contact!

I am also on the organising committee for the Oxford Applied Topology School. We plan to reschedule this event after travel disruption subsides.

Upcoming Conferences

I plan to attend the following series of seminars and conferences:

Ohio State University TRIPODS TGDA Workshop - 21 May 2018
Ohio State University
Description
Topological and geometric ideas have already shown promises in producing novel perspectives and powerful algorithms for analyzing complex and diverse data. As the theory and foundations of topological data analysis continue to mature, we are presented with great opportunities to consolidate existing synergy as well as to establish new connections and collaborations among computational scientists, mathematicians, and statisticians, so as to form new perspectives and develop novel methodologies algorithms for modern data analysis. This workshop, organized by the TGDA group at OSU, presents a timely platform to help achieve these goals.
CMO BIRS Multiparameter Persistence Conference - 06 August 2018
Casa Matemática Oaxaca
Description
Topological data analysis is a young field where we apply the tools of topology to see the coarse shapes of potentially large or high-dimensional data sets. Multi-parameter persistent homology is a relatively new thread of ideas, that allows for topological data analysis to be forgiving of `noise' in data sets. Being a young field, there are connections to an array of disciplines in mathematics as well as the sciences. We are bringing together experts from within the field of topological data analysis, neighboring areas of mathematics and statistics, as well as users of topological data analysis for the purpose of data exploration and visualization. The aim is to further extend the machinery of multi-parameter persistent homology for the purpose of having an effective and pleasant apparatus for studying large data sets.
Dragon Applied Topology Conference - 11 September 2018
Swansea University
Description
The aim of the conference is to bring together the researchers in computational and applied topology as well as celebrate the opening of the UK Centre for Topological Data Analysis established by a consortium consisting of Oxford, Liverpool, and Swansea.
Hot Topics: Shape and Structure of Materials - 01 October 2018
MSRI
Description
The fascinating and complicated microstructures of materials that are now visible through advanced imaging techniques challenge the frontiers of characterisation and understanding. At the same time, developments in modern geometric and topological techniques are beginning to illuminate important features of material structures, while the microstructures themselves and the analysis and prediction of their macroscopic properties are inspiring new directions in pure and applied mathematics. In a collaboration with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), this workshop aims at intensifying the interaction of mathematicians with material scientists, physicists and chemists on the structural description and design of materials.
Kyoto Workshop on Applied Topology 201 - 07 January 2019
Kyoto University
Description
This workshop will focus on mathematical and computational aspects on applied topology together with practical applications.
IST TopApp Workshop - 24 April 2019
IST Austria
SIAM Conference on Applied Algebraic Geometry - 09 July 2019
Universitaet Bern
Description
The purpose of the SIAM Activity Group in Algebraic Geometry is to bring together researchers who use algebraic geometry in industrial and applied mathematics. Algebraic geometry is interpreted broadly to include at least: algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, noncommutative algebra, symbolic and numeric computation, algebraic and geometric combinatorics, representation theory, and algebraic topology. These methods have already seen applications in: biology, coding theory, cryptography, combustion, computational geometry, computer graphics, quantum computing, control theory, geometric design, complexity theory, machine learning, nonlinear partial differential equations, optimization, robotics, and statistics. We welcome participation from both theoretical mathematical areas and application areas not on this list which fall under this broadly interpreted notion of algebraic geometry and its applications.
Málaga & Topology Meeting - 05 February 2020
University of Málaga
Description
We are pleased to organize the sixth edition of this short meeting. We will welcome anyone interested in attending, in an informal and relaxed atmosphere, the talks of a selected group of topologists.
Oxford Applied Topology School - 31 March 2020
University of Oxford
Description
The Oxford Applied Topology School is designed for graduate students and junior researchers in Applied Topology to meet and learn about topics in the field of Applied Topology under the guidance of senior researchers. This workshop will feature 3 mini-lecture series together with exercise and discussion sessions.
ATMCS 2020: Algebraic Topology: Methods, Computation, & Science - 08 June 2020
Ohio State University
Description
A key goal of the conference series is the further development of topological and geometrical techniques for use in applications in biology, materials science, neuroscience, among other fields, and the creation of new areas of applications. This conference series maintains a strong tradition of bringing together leading established researchers and young scientists in this emerging discipline, thus providing an opportunity for the exchange of experience and the development of new research ideas.
