Title: Applied topology, mixing, and microswimmers

Abstract: "I will discuss several topics of my current research, which involves applications of topology and partial differential equations. First, we'll see how ideas from braids and mapping class groups can be used to investigate the behavior of dynamical systems as well as characterize braiding of actual textiles. Nest, we'll examine how the mixing of fluids can be studied via PDEs, and some connections to probability theory. Finally, I'll discuss probabilistic problems for swimming microorganisms, such as dispersion and consumption of resources."
