Hank Chen, M.Sc.
I am an AMath PhD candidate at University of Waterloo. My supervisor is Florian Girelli.
I am interested in topological and geometric aspects of mathematical physics. Particular topics include
- Quantum gravity
- Quantum algebra/non-commutative geometry
- Topological orders and exotic phases of matter
- Topological quantum field theory
- Applied algebraic topology/geometry
Outside of mathematics and physics research, I am an amateur violinist and an early music history enthusiast. I also catively engage in Olympic weightlifting.
