# Daniel Berlyne

I currently work as a Mathematical Researcher at ThinkTank Maths, a role that lies at the intersection of mathematics and data science. I work with technical data from scientific domains (mostly related to space systems) and develop novel mathematical techniques to analyse and model it, as well as implementing solutions for clients in Python.

Before I joined ThinkTank Maths, 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 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.
