Dr. Paul Johnson joins the department of mathematics faculty

Workshop

Dr. Paul Johnson joins the Department of Mathematics fall 2013 as an Assistant Professor. Dr. Johnson received his PhD in Mathematics from the University of Michigan in 2009. His thesis, on the equivariant Gromov-Witten theory of one dimensional stacks, was written under Prof. Yongbin Ruan. Broadly speaking, his research is in the interaction of algebraic geometry and combinatorics. For example, much of his research has been related in some way to the ELSV formula, which relates complicated questions about the topology of the moduli space of curves to simpler questions about writing permutations as products of transpositions. More recent research uses geometry and topology to get new viewpoints on the combinatorics of integer partitions.

Following graduation, Dr. Johnson was a NSF Postdoctoral Fellow, which he spent at at Princeton University (summer 2009) and Columbia University (2011-13). He put his NSF grant on hold for two years to be a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Imperial College in London from 2009-2011.

While in London, Paul met his wife Anna; their daughter Lizzie will turn two this Halloween. Once they've finally settled in, they look forward to spending some time in the mountains.

Stop by Dr. Johnson's office in WB 221 and welcome both him and his family to our community and campus.
