Benjamin Schweinhart

I am an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow and Zassenhaus Assistant Professor at Ohio State University. Previously, I was a postdoc at the Center of Mathematical Sciences and Applications at Harvard University and a mathematics PhD student at Princeton University. My research interests are random and computational topology and geometry, and applications to materials science and physics.
