# Ryan Grady, Ph.D

Associate Professor of Mathematics

## Education

- Ph.D. (2012) and M.S. (2009) University of Notre Dame
- B.S. (2007) Colorado School of Mines

## Research Interests

My research program is (broadly) to study the geometry and topology of manifolds through techniques of quantum field theory (QFT) in a mathematically rigorous setting. In addition, I study some fundamental connections between QFT, derived geometry, and higher Lie theory.

## Students

Here are some of my students and their work:

- Eric Berry (co-chair), PhD (2021): Additivity of Factorization Algebras and Cohomology of Real Grassmanians
- Adam Howard (co-chair), PhD (2021): Immersions of Surfaces
- Garrett Oren, MS (2021): Centers and Centralizers
