## May 12 talk on Maryam Mirzakhani

On May 12, 2022, I gave a talk at Monash for undergraduate students on some of the mathematics of Maryam Mirzakhani.

## Talk at Knots in Washington 49.75

On 22 April 2022 I gave a (virtual) talk at the 49.75th (!) Knots in Washington conference.

## A Symplectic Basis for 3-manifold Triangulations, AustMS 2021

On 8 December 2021 I gave a (virtual) talk in the Topology session of the 2021 meeting of the Australian Mathematical Society.

## Five-minute surrealist antiwar exposition of topological data analysis

On Remembrance Day 2021 (11 November) I have a talk at a session of Lightning Talks at a session on “Mathematics for Data Analysis, AI & Machine Learning” organised by the Monash Data Futures Institute. This was a “Lightning Talk”

## An Arbitrary-Order Discrete de Rham Complex on Polyhedral Meshes

In this article I am acknowledged for providing an explicit basis for a space, which is used in a software implementation.

## General tips for studying mathematics

I don’t know that I would have anything to say that’s not a platitude, but here are some thoughts.

## Summarise your maths research in one slide, Dan

As part of an upcoming workshop participants were asked to introduce themselves with a one-page slide. I took it as an extreme form of concision: summarise your maths research in one slide, Dan.

## A-Polynomials of fillings of the Whitehead sister

Knots obtained by Dehn filling the Whitehead sister include some of the smallest volume twisted torus knots. Here, using results on A-polynomials of Dehn fillings, we give formulas to compute the A-polynomials of these knots. Our methods also apply to more general Dehn fillings of the Whitehead sister.

## One line Euler line

A fun fact from Euclidean geometry that I thought was a wonderful enough gem to share. It’s standard, but it’s nowhere near any curriculum. I’ll try not to get too snarky about the curriculum.

## Ptolemy vs Thurston in Hyperbolic Geometry and Topology, AustMS 2020

On 9 December 2020 I gave a (virtual) talk in the Topology session of the 2020 meeting of the Australian Mathematical Society.
