“Aspects of Toric Geometry”

I will quickly go over the basic notions underlying toric varieties and then describe how to use symplectic reduction to construct them. After mentioning the relationship between Fano varieties and reflexive polytopes we will go through a series of examples to illustrate the theory.

"Hairstyles for a Mathematician"

Besides being a useful hair taming technique, braids are also a beautiful object in mathematics.  In this talk I will give a selective tour of the wonderful world of braids.  We will explore some interesting mathematical nooks and crannies in which braids arise, focusing on a particular representation (the Burau representation) and its connection to knot invariants.
