Join the department in congratulating David Penneys who has been awarded an NSF CAREER award this year.
Title of proposal: "Representing and Classifying Enriched Quantum Symmetry"
From the abstract of the proposal:"Symmetry plays an important role in mathematics and science…. In recent decades, we have seen the emergence of quantum mathematical objects whose symmetries form a group-like structure called a "tensor category", which has a collection of objects with a binary fusion operation. "
"This project has two main focuses: the representation and the classification of these new enriched quantum symmetries. …"
