Chu Ka Yin Karene

  • Fellowship in 2012 at Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Karene Chu received her Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Toronto in 2012. Since then she has been a postdoctoral fellow first at the University of Toronto/Fields Institute, and then at MIT, with research focus on knot theory. She has taught single and multi-variable calculus, and linear algebra at the University of Toronto where she received a teaching award.


Dr Chu is working in the finite-type invariant theories of different knot theories and their relationship to quantum algebras following Dror's Facts and Dreams About v-Knots and Etingof-Kazhdan, different aspects of the braid groups, as well as any interesting questions along the way.
