Daniel Berlyne


Until October 2023, I was a Heilbronn Research Fellow at the University of Bristol, working with Mark Hagen. Prior to this, I completed my Ph.D. in Mathematics at the City University of New York; my thesis advisor was Jason Behrstock.

My research is in geometric group theory and low-dimensional topology (i.e. 2D and 3D), utilising tools from algebra, graph theory, combinatorics, and probability. I recently wrote two Python programs implementing algorithms detailed in my paper on graph braid groups. The code is available on my GitHub page in the ‘graph-braid-splitter’ and ‘graph-braid-presenter’ repositories.

A copy of my research statement is available here.

In 2022-2023, I was an organiser of the Bristol Geometry and Topology Seminar, alongside Luke Jeffreys and Irene Pasquinelli.

In August 2022, I organised a conference on quotients of hierarchically hyperbolic groups.
