Hi, I’m Charles Walker. I studied both mathematics and physics as an undergraduate, and have always been fascinated by how abstract concepts in mathematics can become so important in explaining our universe. I work with Professor Romhanyi on studying how concepts in topology (a field of mathematics which studies the geometric properties of sets) can explain unique behaviors in physical systems. When I’m not doing research, I’m often playing tabletop RPGs or trying to befriend the local crow population around my apartment. I split my work time between my apartment and the lab: I would work outside, but I’m too easily distracted by birds.
Incoming graduate student, co-advised by Prof. Steve White.
