Calum Shearer

PhD Student — Mathematics
Office: Math 217

I am a first year Mathematics PhD student at the University of Colorado Boulder. My primary areas of mathematical interest are Geometry and Topology. I also hold an interest in Quantum Field Theory, particularly what differential geometry/ topology and (representations of) Lie groups can tell us about this area.

I am currently preparing for my comprehensive exam, under the guidance of Markus Pflaum.

I am from Norfolk, England. While not as rainy as other parts of the UK, I am not used to the almost year-round sunny weather in Boulder!
